LARP

Midwinter Feast – a larp event

Midvinterfesten

This weekend I hosted a larp event themed as a medieval (inspired) midwinter feast. Most of the food served was medieval or renaissance inspired. I thought I would gather the recipes together here and show a few pictures.

The event went extremely well both as a larp event and as a dinner. Everyone loved the food, though some of course didn’t like everything. The roleplay was the type we were hoping for, we had no battles or combat at all but rather a lot of character development and political maneuvering. I really couldn’t be happier with how it played out.

As I have mentioned before I am going to Drachenfest later this month. It is one of the world biggest LARPs and is located in Germany. I have never been to a larp bigger than 50 people, it is going to be a bit overwhelming. Part of what I like about larps is the excuse e to dress up. I have constructed my own costume with the help of friends and family. Thank you Ingerlise and thank you Kitte, I could not have done it without you.

The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook

coverTitle: The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook
Author: Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, Sariann Lehrer
Genre: Cookbook, fantasy

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.

Mit vilde vikingekøkken

Genre: Historical cookbook, campfire

I visited my sister in Copenhagen this past weekend and among other things we went to Nationalmuseet (free entrance) to eat brunch and see their viking exhibition – which were both great. Their brunch is always good new nordic cooking with lots to choose from. The viking exhibition is part of their antiquity exhibition which in my opinion is a world-class exhibition. Especially the black treasure rooms are amazing. Well worth a visit. However their medieval exhibition is not worth your time. While we were there we of course had to visit the museum store and I brought “Mit vilde vikingekøkken” among other wonderful things.
