Welcome to Monk's Modern Medieval Cuisine!

Follow along as Dr Christopher Monk cooks from an authentic 14th-century cookery book. He translates each medieval English recipe into modern English and adapts it to modern kitchens and tastes.

So would you like to nibble some noumbles and munch some mouchelet?

Explore the wonders of medieval sugar and spice?  

Amaze friends and family with medieval pastries, sauces and stews?

Then join Christopher on his journey through the oldest cookery book written in English.

Tiers
Pottage Patrons
$3 or more per month

My lovely Pottage Patrons are the foundational "good broth" of Monk's Modern Medieval Cuisine. They receive each new recipe video in full.

Powder Douce Patrons
$5 or more per month

My delightful Powder Douce Patrons get a little extra sweet spice for their support: as well as receiving each new recipe video in full, they get to see bonus video material such as behind-the-scenes recipe experiments.

Saffron Patrons
$10 or more per month

My wonderful Saffron Patrons are valued as highly as the crocus stamens that give them their name. Not only do they receive each recipe video in full and bonus video material, but also are sent an electronic recipe card for every recipe featured, which includes my edition and translation of the original medieval Middle English text, and a step-by-step adapted recipe.
