Delights from Richard's table

Popular British chef, and "self-confessed medieval foodie," Clarissa Dickson Wright takes on the cooking of the 14th century when she prepares dishes from Britain's oldest known cookbook, The Forme of Cury, written during the reign of King Richard II.

The BBC program, Clarissa and the King's Cookbook, is presented in three parts on YouTube

From the website:

The huge variety of dishes that Clarissa finds in the book - from venison and beaver to pike and lamprey, indicates this really was the golden age of the omnivore. As she prepares food using traditional techniques, she wonders what our modern palate will make of the unusual combinations of flavours.
