Leihen Helvetia! 2012 Feast Menu

Preparing the menu for the inaugural Leihen Helvetia! event, set in the Swiss-German town of Helvetia, WV, was my first introduction to Das Kochbuch der Sabina Welserin (1553). This was also my first completely period feast, and it derived mostly from that cookbook. I was beyond excited to find that funnel cake was period, and I think those who attended were pretty happy about it as well.
