An Early Meal: A Viking Age Cookbook and Culinary Odyssey
From festive and exclusive meals of spit-roasted chickens, sweet rosehip mead and exotic berry sauces to the more mundane travellers fare of a simple vegetarian savoury porridge spiced with angelica. An Early Meal- a Viking Age Cookbook & Culinary Odyssey offers a journey across the Viking Age world in search for the cuisine that may have been eaten in Scandinavia 1000 years ago.
Based on archaeological finds and experimental archaeology, this book will take you beyond the boundaries of a regular cookbook and not only give you a number of mouthwatering recipes but also new insights into the Viking Age cuisine. The recipes represent seven different regions from Lofoten in the north to the Viking Age settlement in Jorvik in the south – each with its’ own regional flair.
