Fantasy Dreams - Cooking
Cooking is not something you would consider in fantasy but in medieval times cooks were on the go all day long. At Hampton Court i saw a cooking pot built into the brickwork and the pot was so large it was never moved. Probably used a small child to clean it out once a year!!
The photo above is spits for roasting meat. One man would rotate two spits - each containing meat of about his own body weight
Above is a range of cooking pots and wood burners to cook with. Feeding a garrison must have been a nightmare.
