Of all of the feasts I’ve done in the past couple of years, this is the one I feel was most technically perfect.
All of the food for the entire weekend came out of the Food and Drink of Medieval Poland by Maria Dembinska and The Domostroi: Rules for Russian Households in the Time of Ivan the Terrible, edited and translated by Carolyn Johnston Pouncy. Thought to be written in the mid-16th century, the Domostroi is not a cookbook but a book of rules and etiquette for every aspect of culture for the Russian social elite landowners.
The subteltie at this feast was a whole roast pig, carried forth on a shield, decorated with herbs and fruits.
To the best of my memory:
Breakfast cook: Baroness Teamhair
Hall Steward: Sir Turold
Head Server: Countess Dulcia
Subtlety and plating design: Lady Anne of Blackthorn
Plating: Lady Ysabeau Durant
