Meal Information

Served Feast

Greetings from your cooking guild mistress.

The feast for Founding Revel is a of Viking, Rus Viking and Ukrainian dishes with the exception of the ‘salmon patties’. That recipe was gleaned from the internet and several versions tried and tasted unction a pleasant one was achieved.

Many of the foods here are concept ideas since we have no written information on how things were prepared to eat. We do know what they ate, is found from archeological finds.

Men and women of the north enjoyed fresh vegetables and wild greens in the spring and summer. Autumn and winter they ate root vegetables if there were any left along with ripe berries. Oats and Rye were grown in their climate. They also enjoyed fish-lots of fish: smoked, fried, salted, pickled, dried, baked, caviar and so on. Duck, geese and other fowl along with pork and beef were also eaten.

I do not think the dessert cookies are as sweet as our modern tastebuds would like, this is done on purpose to make a more period flavor and expierence.

The menu is vegetarian friendly, however if you have gluten, egg or dairy issues, you will need to provide for yourself those items.
