On the day before Thanksgiving (Wednesday, November 21 2012) the Shire (Sylvan Glen) had its tradition Shire Thanksgiving at the home of Count Andreas and Countess Kallista. This is a potluck with many contributions of desserts and side dishes. I noticed a lack of appetizers being offered up and I had wanted to try out a recipe that I and my friend Orlando worked on earlier that year at one of the Cook's Guild workshops. The recipe isSaumon a 14th century French recipe from Le Ménagier de Paris. Those who were willing to try the dish seemed to like it very much.
