Sorry, I really couldn’t help myself.
So, for project number two in our 14th century Italian odyssey, I will be doing a food entry, since cooking is my primary emphasis area. Since it appear Kingdom A&S is going to stay on it’s current calendar date, and it falls in the middle of Lent, I am going to tackle a course for a lenten meal from 14th century Italian cooking texts.
So far, I am looking at the following dishes:
A dish of chickpeas for lent.
Lasagne with Walnuts
Cisame, a sweet and sour fish dish
Leeks in Lent
Lenten Apple Fritters
I will be working on redactions in the next month or so, moving forward.
