Third Edition

It was a joy to collaborate with Siobhan Medhbh O’Roarke & Cordelia Toser as a co-author in the Third Edition of Traveling Dysshes. Go to www.traveling-dysshes.com/ to order your own copy today.

Traveling Dysshes is a collection of recipes and information to help someone who knows their way around a kitchen take their first steps in the wide culinary world that is medieval cookery. Filled with recipes translated and tested from period sources, it makes preparing a medieval meal easy. Or, if you want to know what to take to a reenactors’ potluck, you can find easy to create dishes right here. The authors have a friendly, down-to-earth tone that assumes you have basic kitchen knowledge, but not necessarily knowledge about historic cooking.

The book is $18 in hardcopy and $9.99 for the Kindle edition
