European Medieval Cuisine Part 2 - A History through recipes

On the second part of our exploration of Europe's Medieval Cuisine and the regional recipes, we are delving to the amazing, rich and complex foods of Al-Andalus: The medieval Arab Iberian peninsula and the heady mix of spices, fruits from the East, and the mix of Arab, Jewish and Roman cuisines to create something out of this world!

The Almohade Cookbook’s 220 recipes have no counterpart in Middle Eastern cookery of the time; this speaks for the unique character of Muslim Spain’s cuisine. Will check some mouthwatering recipes too.

And from there we go to to Catalonia and then Medieval Germany!
