As far as events go I always like this one, I wish I could spend more time talking with people but I love cooking too. I got to do a lot of both this weekend too! I had some very cool and very interested kitchen helpers!
Spicy beef salami
Hard boiled eggs
Cheese Pie (with sour cheery and black currant jam on the side)
Sop of onions
Peas with walnuts
Baked pears with cinnamon and sugar
Rice boiled in goose broth
Carrots and Parsnips
Herb Fritters with honey
Peascods in lent
Elizabethan biscut bread (done as waffles)
I was happy with most of the food. The dish that disappointed me was the egg pie, though I have been working on it. In this version I upped the rosewater but it still did not have the flavor I was looking for, seems it will have to be even more. I am happy with the crust though :) I did in my opinion over cook these pies and maybe that contributed to the lessening of the flavor.
I had been sick for the week leading up to it and still not at 100 percent. Sunday I crashed and my Mistress and Shelly (one of the fabulous kitchen helpers) finished the desserts for feast.
Everyone was full and seemed to enjoy everything so I would say success.
