Why do I keep thinking of the Lady Tudor Glitz: "I know it's period, I
know you got it cheap, I know Her Majesty loves it, but I just can't
reconcile myself to eel!"

I would like to try eel. It was apparently fairly common and was raised
in mill ponds much as we raise catfish today. Has anyone every served
it at an SCA feast?

Does anyone know where I can get eel (fresh or frozen) so I can try
making a medieval eel dish?
