10th Century Gingerbread – Sterling

I used honey. Honey is old.

In castles they used wood bowls.

I am making gingerbread. They used fire to bake.

It was made in the year 992.

  3. This looks simply amazing. I have two requests of you. 1st as soon as we are able to host events again. Would you please make this for a snack for me. 2nd I would be honored if you would join me in the kitchen the next feast I could. It would be amazing to have you on my team! Keep cooking and experimenting.
