Ye Olde Fashioned Cooking
Gode Cookery has an awesome selection of historical recipes, folklore on the Middle Ages and mythical plants, a glossary of Medieval cooking terms, as well as a gallery of art of historical scenes about cooking, farming, hunting, food, and feasting (which is where I found the picture I used above).
On Bartleby.com, there is a historical cookbook The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book by Fannie Farmer (circa 1918), and you can get a glimpse of proper manners with Etiquette by Emily Post (circa 1922).
On the Food Timeline, you can find a host of historical recipes, and the history of different food, dating all the way back to 17,000 BC.
On this webby you can find recipes from Ancient Rome, and Medieval recipes from the Anglo Saxons and other European cultures.
And here you can find yummy historical Indian recipes.
