How do you imagine medieval cuisine? It would be a mistake to think of it as without fantasy or variety.
How do you imagine medieval cuisine? It would be a
to think of it as without fantasy or variety. Surviving
documents tell us, for example, that when the Sienese
nobleman Francesco di Messer Sozzo di Bandinello
was named "knight" in 1326, a magnificent banquet was
prepared in the Campo Square, on Christmas Eve.
A variety of dishes, including "confetti" (a special kind of cake), "giengevo" (probably a ginger dish) and "bromangieri" (soup, pasta or a rice dish) were served as startes.
Many types of bread and wine in great quantity accompanied the main courses: roasted beef, wild boar, deer, hares, capons, partridges, peacocks and pheasants.
The banquet ended with marzipan cakes and sweets.
The Gallo Nero Restaurant offers a wide selection of dishes which are a faithful reconstruction of the recipies found in medieval cookbooks.
