Subject: [Sca-cooks] New Feudal Gourmet Pamphlet from the Madrone

      Culinary  Guild.

To: Cooks within the SCA <sca-cooks at lists.ansteorra.org>


The Madrone Culinary Guild (Seattle, WA) produces a series of small  

pamphlets called the Feudal Gourmet series.  Each recipe includes  

the original medieval text when possible & then our modern  

reconstruction (with a translation into English if necessary):


1) NEW!!! Tourney Cooking: Recipes to enjoy at outdoor events - A  

large collection of tasty period recipes suitable for everything  

from a picnic to Pennsic. Also provides suggestions for appropriate  

foods you can grab ready-made from a grocery store, as well as  

sections on Boil-in-Bag cooking, Dutch Oven cooking, food & fire  

safety, and practical guidelines for cooking at events. $4


2) A Culinary Reference Manual - our pamphlet on the historical  

origins of ingredients which were (and weren't) eaten in medieval

Includes an extensive bibliography as well as a glossary of  

medieval culinary terms. $4


3) Researching a medieval Recipe: Condoignac - a Quince Paste from  

Paris, 1393 - 1394.  Our latest pamphlet is not a recipe  

collection, but an example of how to meticulously reconstruct an  

historical recipe, from researching each of the ingredients, to  

analyzing in depth the multiple translations of the recipe, and  

going through multiple combinations of ingredients to acheive a  

happy final result.  A great example of taking historical cooking  

to a higher level of research. $3


4) Silk Road : A Culinary Journey to the East - a collection of  

recipes from medieval Venice, Baghdad and Mongolia with supporting  

information on each cuisine. $3


5) Exploring Italian Renaissance Cuisine - A reprint of two papers  

from the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery, one on fish  

consumption, the other on a feast menu from the Italian  

Renaissance.  Includes several recipes reconstructed from  

contemporary sources. $3


6) A dinner from Moghul India - A pamphlet on food in the 16th  

century Moghul court along with the complete recipe texts from the  

Ain-i-Akbari (a record of the reign of Emperor Akbar the Great) as  

well as many other food references from Moghul India. $3

Entrees - A collection of recipes from 16th & 17th c. Europe,
