Winged Hills Collegium & South Oaken A&S Feast March, 2018

Winged Hills Collegium And South Oaken Arts and Sciences Faire, March 11, 2018

March 10 A.S. LII (2018)
Abiding Christ Lutheran Church
326 E Dayton Yellow Springs Rd.
Fairborn, OH 45324

Most of the recipes that were served in this meal came from the esteemed Robert May's "The accomplisht cook, or, The art & mystery of cookery" published 1685.  Certainly out of period if you were to look at the publishing date.  However, several of these recipes can also be found in period; Brawn, Mustard, Jellies and Sallet to name a few.  It is interesting to follow the changes in the recipes from one period to the next, as foods became more available or fell out of favor and/or tastes changed. 

I hope you enjoy.
