How to find old or expired websites.

You will all recall that for nearly a year our website was down due to hacking. After trying for many months to recover the site by deleting the malware from the WordPress installation I finally gave up and decided to go ahead and start from scratch. 

What is interesting however, as many of you may have learnt, sometimes the hard way, is that nothing goes away on the internet. 

Here is an interesting article on this subject published by the New York Times.

The good news is that we are now able to view some of the older postings for by going to this website.

Many of you have asked about some of the recipes posted by Chef Boogsie Lue Tenn, and I am happy to say that some of these can be views on the above link. If you have a particular recipe that you are looking for and you can't find it, please get in touch with me and I will be happy to see if I can recover it for you and re-post it on the current website. 

If anyone has a good recipe please send to me with a picture of the completed dish or preferably a video of you making the dish.
