The Re-Enactor's Cookbook
Reenacting is enjoying a renaissance these days, with fairs springing up around the country. What better way to display, teach, and enjoy the presentation of the Middle Ages than with food? Food has always brought people together, and it's a way to cross cultural divides in a pleasant way. History often seems very dry and unappealing to people, whereas food will draw in the patrons to see what you're doing!Within, you'll find recipes galore, laid out in an easy-to-read format. You can also read the history behind the recipes, ingredients, and spices mentioned in each section of the book. You can enjoy this as a simple cookbook, as an historical reference piece, or a blend of both. There are practical tips on everything from creating a cooking fire, to what type of cooking vessels to use, to how to make this stuff on your electric stove at home. There's so much to learn and a vast array of new (and sometimes exotic) flavors to try. There's a little something for everyone, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free recipes. Learn how to adapt recipes to fit your diet, and how to make them easy to enjoy while at an event, while camping, or even just at home on a week night. Enjoy a taste of the past in your life today!
