Returning from the abyss

Due to commitments with work and study (I get 8 weeks shore time a year) I have been unable to commit the time and effort to my wonderful hobby since leaving the UK in 2010. The plus side of this is I'm being educated in the industry basics as a deck watch keeper and so I am currently learning how to splice rob, handle canvas sewing, tie knots, make a boatswains chair, work out headings true from compass, tack with swell and sea, weigh anchor etc. I'm wondering if there is demand for some…See More

About Me:
I'm an enthusiastic combat re enacter with a taste for formation combat and archery. Recently finished a degree in criminology and sociology and now living in Australia. Parting with Guitars and weapons before hand has been terrible but I hope to find a new group and new life on the sunshine coast. I love woodwork, am part way through teaching myself to fletch arrows and hope to have a go at building in Aus (already have a plan to build a small longboat or cog). Besides this I love food and have a tendency to start something new every other week in terms of cooking projects.
Drop me a line if you wouldnt mind an extra man at arms or archer for training etc.

Well, because of it's weather and it's isolation your island (LOL) didn't had as many diversification in produce as we had, but still the first guild of cheese makers was created in England in the 12 or 13th century.
A most favorite recipe throughout the centuries was "potage" (french). A hardy soup, easy to make and for all classes. Throw anything in it, mainly vegetables, and if you put a slice of bread on your plate and cover it with potage then you'll be a true medievalist.

Hi!
My approach to medieval cockery is somewhat different. I don't copy a recipe of any century, that would be just uneatable today, lol. What I did, and still do, is studdy and research deeply what would be used in those days, specially in the privileged Iberian Peninsula, and have translated it into today's taste. You could research what sort of produce existed in england in the 12th century. Perhaps I can help you.
