Medieval cooking


John Hudson is well known and admired in the archaeological world for being a talented potter. In particular, he makes wonderful reproduction pottery from the Roman to the post medieval period. Yesterday (17th September) he was at Barley Hall in York doing a session on using ceramics in Medieval cookery. For two hours we watched him make the various recipes, put them on the open charcoal fire, then finally we got to taste the food. Verdict: fantastic! The man is a national treasure :-)

Did he use the medieval recepies, too? It must be yummy! Honestly, nowdays the biggest cooking I mostly do is with the help of the microwave!
