LIZ
Hello and welcome to bread and thread, a podcast about food and domestic history. I’m liz.
HAZEL
I’m hazel. We’re two people who studied archaeology together and love history.
LIZ
Today we are joined by our lovely producer and also my spouse Nick Blake.
NICK
Hello
HAZEL
I like this, podcast with Nick.
LIZ
If you listen to the other podcast i do you will have heard them as mod not paper on probablybad so hazel what have you been making and or baking
HAZEL
I probably have one of each - i made hot cross buns the other dad
LIZ
Oh nice
HAZEL
It was very fun i’ve been getting back into bread it’s so soothing kneading forcefully needing and punching the dough is great
LIZ
It is a spiritual experience isn’t it.
HAZEL
I found some very old raisins i hope they’re ok, i haven’t expired yet and mary berry’s recipe is very good.
LIZ
I think i’ve heard of mary berry, yeah.
HAZEL
Oh mary berry of bakeoff fame. so i’ve been doing that and i’ve been crocheting this giant lacy thing.
LIZ
You do lean towards the gigantic lacy thing.
HAZEL
I do i have a thing for massive projects which doesn’t go well with my tendency to not finish things but it’s fun it’s absorbing what about you
LIZ
So about a week ago from time of recordngi or asbout three weeks from when thids episode goes up it was our first anniversary so we made ... so for our wedding i made um with nick’s help but largely i made a three tier raspberry adn white chocolate cake which you probably remember
HAZEL
The same one that was your wedding cake
LIZ
So for our anniversary i made a two person raspberry and white chocolate cake.
NICK
Because marriage is a cake you bake together.
HAZEL
Aaw
NICK
I was hoping you’d cringe at that but.,..
LIZ
You’re getting podcasts mixed up, this is the sincere one.
NICK
This is an irony free zone
HAZEL
This is a wholesome area nick
LIZ
I’m also very excited because ages ago i went to afflecks palace in manchester ad they have this little creation space and one of the things they had was a reversible crochet chameleon.
HAZEL
I think i’ve seen that
LIZ
I’ve obtained the book that pattern is from it’s Crocheted Animals by vanessa i’m excite, technically i haven’t done anything yet because it arrived an hour ago but i’m very excited
HAZEL
That is news of epic proportions
LIZ
I will be doing progress pics on my instagram and let you know when it’s complete.
NICK
Do you want to explain whats Afflecks Palace is.
LIZ
No.
NICK
Ok
LIZ
It’s basically this three storey no four floors independent shops of varying levels of weirdness in the hipster part of manchester.
HAZEL
It’s like an independent department store with very alternative booths.
LIZ
And also this one space that’s just for being creative in which is quite fun. And very northern quarter, which is where it is in Manchester.
NICK
It’s like the department store in Carol, but with more lesbians and fewer santa hats.
LIZ
Not inaccurate. Nick do you want to talk about why you’re here?
NICK
Ok because i make bad life decisions i have a masters in medieval and early modern studies and one of the things being discussed today is a medieval thing so that’s one half of what i’m qualified to talk about.
LIZ
The other half being punctuation but we’re not going to get into that.
NICK
No we’re not going to get into that.
LIZ
You may want to talk a little louder.
NICK
Because we’re going to be discussing the form of cury which may have come up in previous episodes in passing.
HAZEL
Is that how you pronounce it?
LIZ
Yep. It looks like curry but it’s pronounced cury.
HAZEL
I’ve ben saying curry for years.
LIZ
Does it contain anything curry related?
NICK
Not especially. It’s got some spices but nothing more potent than cinnamon and nutmeg.
LIZ
I don’t know it’s got peppercorns.
NICK
Yeah but that’s about it so if you think peppery or aromatic over spicy and you’re about there.
LIZ
I am sad to say i cannot find a recipe book called the form of curry.
HAZEL
I’m hungry now.
NICK
Like i said i’ve got a background looking at medieval things specifically medieval manuscripts and this is about cooking which i’m qualified to talk about due to having a mouth so i’m feeling confident about this.
HAZEL
this is great i’ve already learned how to pronounce it. I’m excited.
LIZ
I don’t know how frequent having nick will be but we’ll be doing an episode about a book or a person every five episodes.
NICK
I’ll be popping up if i have anything of note to say about things otherwise i just gestures in the background when things are recording.
LIZ
And you do the recording. And the editing. And most of the transcripts.
NICK
Yeah. And that.
LIZ
So aside from medieval which is a vague term that spans about 1000 years in western europe what is the forme of cury.
NICK
The forme of cury is a cookbook written by the chef of richard II.
LIZ
So 14th?
NICK
Yeah 14th century and it properly runs the gamut there’s basic dishes there’s fancier stuff basically everything you need to prepare that
