Slowly the plans for this summer are unfolding themselves, though I am still waiting to hear if I got some money for a few Viking age boiling experiments.
However the theme of this summer will be 15th century manor cuisine as I will be working at Glimmingehus (http://www.raa.se/cms/extern/en/places_to_visit/glimmingehus/glimmingehus_the_medieval_manor.html) where I will be reconstructing recipes from the 15th and 16th century. This will be done in a reconstructed 16th-17th century kitchen
The main plan is to use dutch and german sources from 1450-1550 – mainly Sabina Welserin, but if anyone have a good suggestion I could be looking into that aswell. The cooking will be done infront of the tourists so anyone passing through the manor are welcome to investigate my cooking experiments.
