Tom probably would have appreciated a giant Turkey leg!

I think the problem here is how to get "medieval" without doing something
esoteric and actually medieval.

I probably would have done something with dried fruits and a flavor profile
of Christmas spices. I think that would say Medieval to the judges while
still being accessible.

There is a restaurant in Venice (Le Bistro IIRC) that does really great
Renaissance Italian inspired dishes that are accessible to the public (and
mostly correct) but still not "weird".
