It was a dream come true when friends from German re-enactment group MiM (IG Mensch im Mittelalter) invited me and my friends from Merry Swan tailor group to spend a weekend at Castle Ronneburg, Germany last weekend at 100 Jahre 14tes Jahrhundert event. I was accepted to work in the castle kitchen with awesome re-enactors from around Europe. Together with Mervi and other Swans we made food and helped others to make their dishes for about 80 people. Swans used some of the recipes that are in our cooking book and in this blog and some recipes our members have got to known by their travels to the other events. Mervi’s meat pies were a success and I am intending to writing down some more pie recipes here in future.

Did I mention awesome people? The kitchen grew was mainly from Germany, Netherlands, England, Luxembourg and Finland. There I met nice people from a group called Apri Ludibundi –historic kitchen group. You can find a lot more pictures about the event from their facebook page here.

Here are some of my pictures and some of our Swan group pictures (Antti was behind the camera) from past weekend:
