Hi. I'm a student and would like to use your picture of your pottage in a college presentation.
Would that be OK?

hi, i have a history project on the life of a serf/peasant and i would like to use this picture. is that okay? also can I have some more information on this picture because we have to cite our sources using noodletools, but I don't have enough information. thank you :) Our images and information can be used for educational (only non-commercial) projects and lessons and it is always a good idea to ask about image use. The images for this recipe were taken in the reconstructed kitchen at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum and the dishes were researched and prepared by historical food expert Cathy Flower-Bond. She interprets original source material Like 'Two Fifteenth Century Cookbooks' into working recipes at the museum and this is one of her recipes. We hope this answers your questions and hope your project goes well. The Cookit Team

Hello everyone. I have a suggestion to make to the recipie. It would make the pottage more enjoyable by adding a few more vegetables like carrots, cauiliflour and garden peas. At my schools medieval banquet we added these and it was good. We also had homemade brown bread rolls too. This makes the meal thoroughly more enjoyable 😊

Made this out of curiosity not expecting much - it's surprisingly delicious and hearty, and I will definitely be making it again. (I added 50g of porridge oats to thicken and a teaspoon of marmite for some body)
