History of Royal Food and Feasting Week 1 recipe

I am doing an online class and it has a royal food theme. This is the first online class I have taken and it is very interesting.

Part of the course includes a cook-along food dish.

Week 1 was a Tutor pie called Tarte owt of Lente

 

Here is my Tarte owt of Lente

I made the pastry by using a pre-packaged pastry mix that all I had to do was add the water to combine. Saved rubbing butter into flour!

I used Ricotta, cheddar and cottage cheese for the filling and while the recipe called for pounding it with a mortar and pestle I again took the easy way and used a stick blender to ‘pound’ the cheeses into a paste. I used an Australian mountain pepper mix for the spices.

I was very surprised at how it rose in the cooking process. It smelt wonderful coming out of the oven. pie1

It looked great when cut it and I can see that the ‘rise’ was all air.  pie2

The pie tasted great and was even better the next day as a cold slice.

I was very impressed with the simplicity of making the pie and the great taste that resulted.
