Then Serve It Forth
"Welcome to the kitchen, which everyone knows is the warmest, most fragrant, most FUN place in the castle. Together we can recreate and enjoy the same wonderful dishes which our ancestors feasted on in period.
This page is a compendium of monthly columns published in Terra Pomaria's baronial newsletter, The Privy. The recipes are loosely connected to the seasonal year on the manor. Therefore, I have listed the recipes both by title, and by month of publication. Each recipe includes a transcription of the recipe (at least as closely as language will allow), a translation from medieval to modern spelling and terminology, my realization of the recipe, and a glossary of terms, where they are described in more detail. The complete glossary is also posted as a separate link, for those of you with a curiosity for language.
Please join me on my travels through history and cuisine. If any of my readers would like to offer a recipe or two for these pages, I warmly invite you to do so. I am sure there is a warminglnook where we can share our secrets over a goblet of hypocras."
