The Bachelor and the Proto-Microwave: Welsh Rarebit

Baked bean rarebit

I’m stoked to announce that I’m writing a new column for Table Matters called “Forgotten Foods.” Every month, I’ll be featuring a different recipe (or family of recipes) that used to be popular but, for whatever reason, has fallen out of favor. You can expect: old cookbook weirdness, delicious recipes, and a lot of butter and cream.

The first piece is about a mega-delicious, late-1800s bachelor food that gave people absolutely batshit dreams. I am not making this up. Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to experience the glory of Welsh rarebit.
