I have been cooking historical recipes for many years, mostly stuff from 18th and 19th century America. I like cooking anyway, and as a historian I find that sort of thing interesting on several levels. More recently I have been trying to make medieval recipes, and so for the last few years I have started picking up some medieval cookbooks and reading some stuff online about it. It seems a lot more difficult, I think. And although I have managed to successfully make a few things (this spinach tart turned out really well, I think), I have just not found a lot of medieval recipes that really made me want to try them.
Until a few weeks ago, when Kelly got me A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook.
