Tapping into the collective knowledge: food and herbs
- This Pennsic, I'll be teaching my Food and Drink of Medieval Eastern Europe class again,
and also teaching a new class of Herbs and Spices of Eastern Europe.
I'm hoping that this group, with its wide reading, can alert me to information
sources/bits of documentation I'm not aware of. If you've come across some piece of
information about foodways or herbs in medieval Eastern Europe in your reading, I'd like
to hear about it.
I have already looked at the article "Food in the Primary Chronicle", at the Domostroi,
at _Bread and Salt_, Knab's _Polish Herbs Flowers and Folk Remedies_ and Dembinska &
Weaver's _Food and Drink in Medieval Poland_. I'm looking at Lang's Hungarian cookbook
soon, and also will try to incorporate some material from Rumpolt.
The existing handout is online here:
I'm expecially looking for any good documentation things Czech, Slavonian, Lithuanian or

>Hungarian.-- Hi, I research this stuff too. I will be going to Slovakia in July, It
might be too late for your Pennsic class by time I get home and get you any
information, but I would be happy to share whatever I find. I will probably
write some articles for the Slovo too.
