Pork and chicken meat pie

Kyllinge- og svinepostej

My sister visited my parents’ summer house this week with her new baby and I of course had to come as well. On Tuesday a lot of the family came to visit so we were eight grownups for dinner and a three weeks old baby (who is adorable). I offered to cook for everyone because hey test subjects!

I had had my eyes on trying out more postej1 recipes. After looking in my recipes books and my time frame I set my eyes on a pork and chicken postej2, which is a 1300’s recipe. I also decided to make my game pie as it uses the same crust doughs – and I had made it before and it was good. This time I made it with beef and more grapes which worked really well. Keep Reading

It has been forever since i have done a book review here. I have been doing a bit of reading on historical cooking again, promted by listing to “The Great Courses: Food: A Cultural Culinary History“.

Damper

A damper is an Austrian bread type that as far as I know has its origin in the colony era. It is a very quick bread. You just throw the ingredients together and then bake it right away. This recipe is one i modified from a recipe on albanyaustralia.com. I have made it in an oven and over open fire on a skillet at the larp I was at this summer. Both work great. The recipe is quite malleable and can be made both sweet and savory.   Keep Reading

The fork used as a lucet

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.
