Medieval Cookery in World Civilization class

Students in Ms. Ritsma’s history celebrated the end of their unit on Medieval history by tasting several recipes from, “The Forme of Cury”, which was written about 1395. Students tasted:
Gourd Soup
Soft Gingerbread with Fruit
Sugared Lasagna
Lemon Puddings
This cookbook was a collection of recipes used in Richard II’s court. Unfortunately for Richard, this was the only lasting legacy of his reign as he ruled poorly and was a very unpopular monarch.
