The Passion of the Boar

We roasted a whole boar on woodfire at Hattonchâtel castle in France for a memorable medieval banquet. See how it's done, from start to finish. Not for the faint of heart!

Hypocras was the most popular drink at parties and banquets in the Middle Ages. See how we made a gallon of it in Hattonchatel castle in France using the original spices they used back then. 

French castle Expedition

A reader invited me to stay at his castle at Hattonchatel near Verdun in France. I went last week-end to cook extraordinary medieval dishes in the castle - see what's coming next in my 7-article-serie!

Chicken for Dessert

One of the greatest desserts in Turkey is made with chicken breasts. It is based on an almond-and-chicken pudding once hugely popular in medieval Europe. See how it's made!

Red-Hot Medieval Roots

I always wanted to cook root vegetables in hot embers but didn't have the required giant medieval hearth - until a month ago. See how we cooked turnips and beetroots from Hattonchâtel's moat garden in the castle's walk-in fireplace.
