Oops, I posted this is entertaining and hospitality, which is the wrong thread. Apologies for duplicates, not sure how to delete the original.
I am looking for suggestions for weird, unique, or possibly historically significant recipes. I am a volunteer with a speaking group that puts together short talks from the more bizarre corners of history, science, or technology -- and they're having a pot luck next week! So I want to collect recipe ideas.
For example: Nostradamus, in addition to his prophecies, also published a cherry jam recipe (someone is already bringing Nostradamus Cherry Jam).
Anyone know of interesting recipes? Dishes served at King Henry VIIIs wedding? Military victory feasts? Roman recipes of good fortune?
