My latest article posted at at the English Historical Fiction Authors website takes a look at a typical dinner at Kenilworth, at the time that Simon de Montfort and his family were in residence.
The article details an early afternoon meal as served to Eleanor, Countess of Leicester and a small number of invited guests, in the absence of the Earl Montfort. Fully researched, this glimpse into life in the Thirteenth century includes a number of recipes and complete details for their preparation as well as the presentation of a stately meal.
