I have been cooking medieval and renaissance food since I found the Society for Creative Anachronism at the age of 17.
I have always cooked my own versions of recipes, rather than using other people's interpretations, and here I intend to share the results of my work, hopefully also sharing with you the great love I have of cooking.
Well, much to my joy I am back on solid foods. My appetite isn't what it was, and that is not necessarily a bad thing, but I can now enjoy most solid foods.
My friend Vicki flew over from Australia, to check that I really am in one piece, and together we took much joy in re-introducing me to solid foods. The celebration dinner? At one of my favourite restaurants, le Chante Clair.
There I am with my delicious asparagus - perhaps it seems odd that I would go for asparagus, after all my soups, but I just love the stuff, and had to take advantage of the fact that it is in season.
Vicki and I then went on a bit of a spa tour, checking out the waters in various locations around France and Switzerland, and of course enjoying small portions of various delicious things where ever we went.
