Mark Bridge

  Mark Bridge lives in Park Rapids.  He's a musician, a historian, a history re-enactor, a chef and a revivalist of recipes from days long gone by.   We spoke on the morning show about his experience as a historical re-enactor and about an exciting project he's embarked on with the National Park Service.  He's been commissioned to re-create recipes written by Mrs. Augusta Kohrs, wife of a Montana cattle king and hostess on a ranch that spanned more than one million acres.  Click on the link to listen to Mark talk about how his life led him to a love of history and what has gone into re-creating the recipes of Augusta Kohrs (some that are written in German!).  You can catch up with mark on his blog, The Cottage Baker
