The Culinary Ithra went really well this weekend, and was a lot of fun. I taught three classes in a row, and was pretty hoarse by the end of the day, but I really enjoyed it and people were really engaged, which always makes it easier.
Best of all, I just happened to score the leftovers from one of the classes of the lovely and amazingly talented Baroness Anne-Marie d'Ailleurs for lunch. I left home in a hurry and hadn't had time to put anything together for lunch, so Anne-Marie's mushroom pie, stuffed eggs, smoked halibut, et. al. was a lovely surprise. Mmmmmm. French Medieval goodness.
Between the lovely lunch and prepping for my classes I got all fired up to try some more historic recreation cooking. If I get to it I'll post about the results.
My handout for the Viking Food class ended up pretty lame (poor preparation on my part) but I'll post what I have soon.
