I think it would be really groovy to be in on the construction of
a "Grete Pye". The kind that has to be carried in by 4 servants.
Recreating a typical daily meal for Henry VIII where several dishes
are brought in and he'd eat from one or two per course.
A visit from the Chinese Emperor and how the Tudor Cooks would
try to interpet classical Chinese recipes to serve.
Roasting a pig and filling the cavity with sausages, roasted organ
foods, train roast, etc.....then having it sewn up so at dinner the
pig's belly would be sliced open and the "guts" falling out.
New World food being plunked into the kitchen and the cooks figuring
out what to do with it. Imagine the Medieval cook confronting tomatoes,
jalapenos, white potatoes, bison, maple syrup, cocoa, etc....
Just off the top of my head.
