Transforming medieval recipes into products to tickle twenty-first century taste buds is an exciting challenge, and this is where the fusion between past and present really happens. The Avalon Restaurant combines modern technology with medieval flavours to create a surprisingly happy pairing. Medieval food was seasonal, sustainable, and often dairy-free. What’s not to love!
Recreating medieval dishes is an adventure. Medieval cookbooks only detail the food of the elite, and it’s unlikely that any were written by the cooks themselves. Like incomplete puzzles, the recipes rarely mention quantities, or temperatures, and give few instructions. They have sensitively reconstructed, with a dose of creative license, truly unique and tantalising dishes to transport your culinary senses on a true journey of discovery.
