Interruptio studii

Hello folks,

I just wanted to bring you up to date and explain why there has not been much activity on the website (or my Facebook page) recently.

I’ve not been keeping so well the last couple of months and have needed to put my medieval cookery research and writing to one side. I hope to pick things back up as soon as possible.

I’m presently under referral to a neurologist but due to the impact of the Covid19 epidemic the tests I need carrying out at hospital have been delayed, though I have had a rudimentary investigation at my GP surgery. Hopefully, the scan(s) can go ahead soon.

In the meantime, please bear with me. I will try to post a few pics – random things related to food and/or medieval cookery over the next few weeks, just to keep our appetites whetted.

The picture above is of wild garlic growing at the edge of woodland, very nearby to where I live. Wild garlic is also known as ramson (Old English hramse) or wood leek (Old English wuduleac), amongst other names. If you want to read more about it, the Woodland Trust has some useful and interesting information on it.

  1. Chris – Take care of yourself! COVID19 has disrupted so many lives, and it’s hard to imagine what the new normal will look like, but I hope you’re able to get the tests done soon.
