This next weekend is Love, Chocolate and Romance weekend at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.  We will be performing 5 shows each day this weekend:11:00am – Spice making demonstration

12:30pm – Bread making – history of bread and how it was made back in the Renaissance  (we will be using wheat flour).

2:00pm – History of spices and their uses

4:00pm – Romantic meal: Cornish game hens along with field mushrooms with hazelnuts and port wine poached pears

5:00pm – How to season your cast iron pots, wooden utensils, and honing your kitchen knives.

We are always cooking up a storm!  We are located next to Como Cottage and near the Mead Booth and Mac’s Pub.  Hope to see you there!

Alice uses cast iron pots and wooden utensils and keeps the recipes as close to the traditional recipe as possible. She even utilizes a fire pit located outside her home to test authentic recipes. For more information about Alice the Cook, visit her website at In future blogs, I will offer recipes, kitchen hints, and historical cooking lessons.
