Join Laura Carlson, food historian, writer, and host of the award-winning radio show & podcast, The Feast, for a an exciting dive into the history of medieval Spanish food and culture. Considering the voyage of a medieval pilgrim along the famous pilgrimage path, the Camino de Santiago, Laura will take you on a journey through the cultural and culinary landscape of medieval Spain, and give you a sense of its enduring legacy. The pilgrimage path even inspired what might be called the first “travel guide” in medieval Europe – almost like a Michelin Guide or Lonely Planet of its day.
Dinner by Len Senater
Always up for a challenge, I’ll be taking a stab at a number of medieval Spanish recipes, starting with Ajo Blanco, a chilled white gazpacho with almonds and garlic; Pescao en Escabeche, fish cooked in oil and vinegar (vegan option available), dressed with Juvert, a green, pesto-like sauce of herbs and nuts; and Ciurons Tendres Ab Let De Melles, chickpeas cooked in almond milk and spices. For dessert will be Tarta de Santiago, a gluten-free almond cake, with Higos ala Francesa, figs stewed in sweet wine, and a dollop of creme fraiche.
