Jorvik Medieval Festival

Every time a new member joins our entertaining Book Club, we would host a Medieval-based potluck. If you love medieval fashion as well as food, you would certainly enjoy our potluck. The new mother that had joined us was very friendly and she made the most perfect Honey Mustard Glazed Gammon. Other dishes that were served at the potluck were Chardewardon (pear custard), Pottage of Turnips, Salmon Flatbread with Skagen Sauce and you can’t forget their famous Barley Porridge.

Since this a welcoming party, we always encourage mother to bring their children. We even organised children games to keep them entertained. We always hope that more mothers will be interested in joining our book club so stay tuned !

Chicken and Leek Pie

An historic recipe dating back to medieval Wales, Chicken and Leek Pie offers incredible, comforting flavors and simple luxury. This was elegant cuisine then and now.

Maids of Honour - Old English Tudor Cheesecakes

These are the forerunner of modern baked cheesecakes, and this recipe originates from one of the first documented versions of this recipe. Curd cheese was very popular as an ingredient for desserts many hundreds of years.
I always make these for afternoon tea - they are delightfully light and fragranced with delicate orange flower water or rose water. Use any dried fruits that you have available - I find a mixture of seedless raisins and chopped candied peel works very well.
