A Medieval Dinner

Mrs. Perry’s Advanced Senior English class participated in a Medieval Dinner Monday, Nov. 4th. After students read The Canterbury Tales, which is about a medieval road trip that consisted of a variety of people from that time period, they researched different foods from the medieval times and brought dishes in to share with the class. Some dishes brought in were Medieval Fine Cakes, Almond Milk Rice, Strawberries in Snow, Strawberry Tarts, Pumpes (Meatballs), and Emplumeus (bakes apples). The students also had to choose a modern person to bring on the road trip, and write a poem him/her in iambic pentameter with rhyming couplets like Geoffrey Chaucer did for The Canterbury Tales. The trip consisted of sports heroes like LeBron James, Aaron Rodgers, and Baker Mayfield to politicians like Donald Trump and Barrack Obama.
