SCA Potluck Recipes

A selection of tasty recipes compiled by Hildegarde Stickerin for an Introduction to Medieval Food Class, presented September 14, 2002 at the Midlands Newcomer Seminar, and then again the next year September 13, 2003.

Although the majority of recipes are Anglo-Norman 14th and 15th century, other cultures and time periods are included - including some "Laurel Kingdoms" oldies that are not perfectly authentic.

Apologies, but this is not fully complete at this time... I am continuing to work on webbing it from my paper sources. As a result some of the recipes do not yet have functional links.
In the meantime, the full selection of recipes without the extensive notes can be seen by downloading the handout. The entire printed handout is in two parts:
