Forme of Cury with Christopher Monk


Forme of Cury with Christopher Monk




In episode two of the second season Neil chats to food

historian, chef and scholar Dr Christopher Monk about the first cookbook

written in the English language: Forme of Cury. We talked about –

amongst other things – who wrote it and use it in the first place, the familiar

ingredients and recipes inside the manuscript, blancmange and how to approach

cooking ‘authentic’ medieval cuisine.
