Meal Description

Aurochs were a medieval bovine species, which are now extinct, but it sounded a lot more medieval than just calling it a beef  roast. We also will be offering a wild boar roast as well, which was a common entree at the time.

The roasts will be served with a Medieval Grains of Paradise sauce, which is similar to pepper with its own unique taste.  The sauce also includes Verjus, or French for “Green Juice,” which is basically Green Grape juice made from unripe grapes, making it highly acidic. Verjus has been used for centuries and is basically interchangeable with vinegar. However, the most distinct aspect of the sauce is the use of “burned” bread as both a flavor enhancer and a thickener.

Medieval Armoured Buttered Turnips, are essentially a gratin, however by calling them “Armoured” and  including Poudre Douce (cinnamon, cassia flowers, ginger, grains of paradise, nutmeg, Galangal, and sugar), we can then call them Medieval. Sadly, Roast Boar, Armoured Turnips, and Pigeon Pie (we can’t find anyone to sell us pigeons!) were served at the Red Wedding….and we know how that went.

Lastly, the roasts are served with Medieval Baked Apples, which are really similar to Baked Apples….except served as a side of a main course rather than a dessert as they are normally served today.  

Bon Appétit!
