Harvest Day



An attempt at an authentic 15th century English feast. This menu is (very) loosely based on one titled "Conuiuium domini Henrici Regis quarti, In coronacione sua apud Westmonasterium" found in "Two Fifteenth-Century Cookery Books" (T. Austin, ed.).

The original menu consisted of three courses with a total of 43 dishes (more than three times the number being served here).
