Re: 13th C. Farm

It might be a bit late for your period, but 'Food in Medieval England: Diet and Nutrition (Medieval History and Archaeology)' was a very good point of reference. It has quite a bit from monastic estates. I warn you now, it is a hard slog to read! its extremely fact and value heavy.

Re: Helmets

I concur, a kettle hat would be worn but the ones being turned out at the moment are very wide brimmed (unless you have one made for you). A skull cap with aventail would be acceptable throughout the period. Personally I found a bashinet restricted my vision, but thats my own opinion. It depends als...

Re: Need help with Bread

Brears uses a lot of references. Which along with illustrations and speaking to people have read far more than me, and from my experience the food doesnt dramatically change between the time periods. Though if anyone knows of a 15th century book on bakery I'd happily buy it, or sell a kidney.

Re: Need help with Bread

I got the reference from 2 places, 'All the kings cooks' Peter Brears (Worth its weight in gold) and from the venerable Jack Green. I've been playing with dough for nights now, but its all good practice. I fire the oven for about 2 hours to get it temperature. I believe I can judge temperature fairl...

Re: Need help with Bread

Cheers very much. The steward will be the stage in between get him to a doctor and get him to hospital. Kind of depends how much he eats, but with leaving the yeast to break it down for a long time and knocking it back hes been ok. I think I've been making the dough too stiff, I'll try it a little t...

Re: Need help with Bread

Lovely, one of those fine line situations. I've got to use spelt because one of our members is gluten free. Bad things happen when he eats it, also it authentic. Is there any guides to when the dough is ready. I understand if its tacky in the middle its a good sign? or am I misunderstanding that?

Re: Need help with Bread

Ah yes, I kneaded for at least 10, 15minutes. I was working within a fireplace so it was warm. So other than lots of kneading and being patient thats the secret?

Need help with Bread

Hi all I represent a 15th century baker, with all authentic flour and techniques. I have a portable oven that's as close to the illustrationsas possible. I fired the oven a half dozen times, I've got the temperature worked out nicely. However I can't seem to get my bread fluffy inside. I get the cru...
