Redacting Medieval Recipes
by THF Dagonell Collingwood (David Salley)
I have a strong interest in Medieval History. I am a member of the
Society for Creative Anachronism.
My medieval persona lives in the
Kingdom of Aethelmearc, in the
Shire of Heronter.
I've had five
publications about heraldry in the organization, under my Medieval
THF Dagonell Collingwood of Emerald Lake
I also publish a regular
column in the local newsletter.
Additionally, I occasionally "redact" or modernize Medieval Recipes.
The Tales of Redwall by Brian Jacques is your standard sword and sorcery
fantasy series, except that the characters are all mice and squirrels and
rabbits. Brian wrote "The Redwall Cookbook" listing how to make the dishes
he mentions in his stories. It's basically a vegetarian's cookbook for
children. I've decided that I'm going to reproduce every recipe in the book!
I've won the Gode Cookery Site of the Month Award!
