Vildtpostej og græskar puré
I hosted a renaissance dinner party for a few friends where I served game pie, pumpkin puré, bread, grapes and a chunky apple jam.
I am in the process of arrangering a medieval feast as a larp event, so I am reading cookbooks. I am yet to try any of the recipes, so this review is based on my experience reading it for the first time, rather than actively using it.
Bailey was the most common grain in the viking age (in Scandinavia). The Danish word for barley; “byg”- means grown grains. The archaeologists think that barley crackers flour have been common. Most bread was baked on a hot stone next to the fire – it seems likely that they would make barley crackers as well as flat breads.
If you are a fan of fantasy or historical cooking, then I think you will enjoy this cookbook. All the recipes in it are for dishes mentioned in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice & Fire. It is written by two fans of the series and approved by George R. R. Martin. However it really fits a lot of fantasy settings and would be great inspiration for cooking for most other fantasy inspired events.
For years by sister and I has hosted Halloween parties for a group of friends. I love to cook for people so I tend to bake party snacks. Among those are these scary spider muffins. They are muffins with raisins, nuts and apples made to look like spiders by adding licorice strings as legs. They only take half an hour to make and they are yummy. I like the mix of soft and crunchy bits that the apples and nut bits provide.
