I don't think he did a bad job considering what he had to
work with. I doubt many of us could have done as well
being thrown into such a situation.
And his efforts appeared to please the reenactor judges well
I like Robert Irvine and truly respect his skills as a chef. He
also combines that pefect combination of ruthlessness, humor,
and skill that makes for a good top end chef.
I doubt he could do a good 12th Night in a period manner because
that takes years of studying to understand even one of the
cuisines we recreate. So unless he had a recipe book and the
groceries pre-bought as well as someone deeply knowledgable
in the cuisine of the period, he would just do what he knows.
I'm sure it would still be pretty awesome.
