Olwen the Odd asked for someone:
<<< Someone in Wales is doing a feast and here are the parameters of  

three removes, with the first being suitable for Advent (as our feast  
is before Christmas) but the second and third being documentable  
Christmas feast foods.
Either recipes (with source) or links to places with recipes would be  

What were the (if any) differences between the food restrictions of  
Advent vs. Lent?

Olwen, please point this individual to the food and feast sections of  
the Florilegium. Without more details I'm not sure how I can help  
further. These files in the CELEBRATIONS section might be of interest:

This file in the BEVERAGES section might help:

Are they looking for foods in Wales, or are they just in Wales? If  
the former, this file in the FOOD-BY-REGION might be of use:
fd-Wales-msg      (28K)  7/ 1/05    Food of medieval Wales. Recipes.

Here are some Lenten feasts from the FEASTS section:
Lenten-Fst-mnu-art (9K)  4/ 4/04    The menu for a small feast in  
Lent by Brekke
Mid-Lent-Dnnr-art  (7K)  4/27/01    A Mid-Lenten dinner by Rudd  

I'm not wanting to get too overbearing on the remove vs. course  
terminology, but there is also this article in the FEASTS section:
