A Blast From The Past!

A conversation with a friend (yes, I do actually know people that aren't connected with work....though not many) prompted me to look out some old pictures of a 'project' we did back at the Christmas event 2003/2003....when we were younger, thinner and had more hair.....in the right places!!

I don't think I've posted them here before, may have done on the now defunct original blog pages over at Yahoo, so for your delight and delectation, the good Baron (Frankenstein that is) is happy to present the Purkey and Tig....

Oh the fun we had! Well it kept the two of us busy for that New Years Eve anyway.

Not sure if we'll try it again or not, all of that 'creation' business takes it out of you, but this coming year could be a good time to try. I think though that I'd rather have another go at peacocks, it's been a loooong time since we cooked one of those at the Palace and it would be nice to give it a go again, especially as we now can afford cameras to record what we do. More things to add to the list then....still if it keeps us off the streets?

Kind of wonderfully sculptural yet slightly sinister at the same time...

The peacock sounds interesting, how did you prepare it, eg which recipe from which manuscript/etc did you use? I find the cooking and culture of the period, in fact most periods completely fascinating! x

Those are great - I especially like that you left some of the feathers on the wing. Did you cook them? If so, how did they hold up?

Thanks for posting the pics!

It's interesting story. Davvero did you cook them?

will be much easier to answer all these questions with another posting.....when I've found the other pictures that I'm sure we took!!

Will sort it out as soon as I can find where they are stored on the hard drive

Dare I ask - where will you obtain your peacock? Robert says you didn't post the reverse cockertrice pic before now because it was too disturbing! I'm enjoying the surprise flurry of posts to the blog by the way ;o)
