The Forme of Cury - Fritter of Herbs & Ryschewys of Fruit

In this video, Mathilde Haðebyr, Kaðlin in Stórráða, and Gersvinda Gaeslingr give us their redactions of two fritter recipes from The Forme of Cury. The first is Fritter of Herbs and the second is Ryschewys of Fruit. Ryschewys of Fruit are a deep fried desert made with fresh and dried fruits. Additional details about these recipes are available on their blog: totalwingnut.blogspot.com.

The Forme of Cury, a collection of medieval English recipes, was compiled in the 1390′s by the master cooks of King Richard II of England. It was later presented to Queen Elizabeth I. Thanks to the efforts of Project Gutenberg, this text has been made available in digital form for public consumption and provides a diverse selection of recipes that might have been encountered in up-scale dining during the medieval period. A full copy of the text in several forms is available here: www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/8102
