SO soon after the last one, but a very different feel to the 1st day. I don't just mean that I still feel a bit tired from the last one but today was busy for a Saturday with lots of tourist and school groups. I think I spotted French and German school parties. There were a lot of French family groups, also German and Russian. The usual smattering of American and some Australians. I guess tourist season has started.
I would list who did what, except I don't remember, did I mention I still feel tired? I do know the 2 Barrys were in "civvies" and had the camping gaz cookers and modern pans out. There were doing modernized version of "Spanish pap" and "Apple moyes" (rice pudding and apple sauce) to recreate something like Meuller Corners. They also did their version of "rice of flesh" (chicken risotto). They even had a copy of the book that has the recipes in, a) original medieval format, b) translated in to "readable" English, and c) a moderm recipe that you would expect to see in a cook book.
Robin did an apple moyse and when last seen was doing a pea dish, that had a mix of mushy and whole peas. He also trimmed the beef for the spit.
Robert was doing something like "How to make pottage for the summer season". Basically spicy meatballs in a spicy sauce
Marc H made"to fry beans", which is (surprise surprise) broad beans boiled, husked, and then fried with onions and spices
David was gilding the sails for the sugar ship
. was doing the roasting (hmmmm, delicious beef today, moist and succulent and tender and I don't know if anyone got the joint back from Jamie the fire warden, I think he looked to be intent of finishing it all.
Jorge had run out of the olde style paper last week and so was back at doing the Tudor dining and table manners lark. He was very busy most of the day.
I took a few pictures, I did get Robert's triumph, him NOT cooking portions for one and he did a big dish of the meatballs, I'll have to stop being rude about his small scale experiments - the lad's in the big time now...
