Medieval cooking in schools

The BBC website has an interesting piece about a project bringing a taste of medieval diet to some schools in Yorkshire, history and health lessons all in one. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, the plan is to highlight the differences between medieval food - high in grains and vegetables for the poor, more meat and spices for the rich, and no snacking! - with the food we eat now.

Great post Lindsay. What is Parkin, and bonfire toffee. The site you posted said it cannot be found on the server.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Neecy!
Sorry about the links - I've now redone them so you can see. Bonfire toffee is a very dark toffee. Parkin is a sweet cake. You will be able to see both now with the new links.
