Description
You’re a good cook. You’ve even worked with some medieval recipes from modern cook books - but now you want to work direction from medieval manuscripts. The only catch is, how do you follow a recipe that has no quantities, no cooking time or temperature, and several ingredients you don’t recognize? In this class we’ll talk about taking a systematic approach to turning vague medieval cook’s notes into a consistent, reproducible modern recipe. We’ll talk about translation, measurements, techniques and more, with recipe examples from English, French, German and Italian sources. (Class will be recorded.)
