Culinary weekend

Pierre Wind is busy both days with insect snacks from prehistoric times, Roman dishes for young and old, to the medieval roast.

If you lived in the Mesolithic, you were mainly engaged in hunting and gathering. You ate fish, small game, nuts and roots from shrubs or fruits. In Archeon the hunter-gatherers are busy roasting a wild boar, but they also do not shy away from eating insects. These are very nutritious! Try eating a mealworm yourself, if you dare!

The first farmers are busy baking bread and making cheese and a kind of beer is already being brewed!

In Roman times, snacks were prepared on the street for the busy Roman on the way. Taste the delicious culinary delights that the Romans brought to our country, or have a chat with the wine merchant who recommends his wares. Taste the same food and drink that was consumed by senators 2,000 years ago. Enjoy Libum, the Roman bread, Posca - practical soldier wine and Roman poffertjes for the children.

In the Middle Ages, the daily fare was a stew or porridge, supplemented with fresh bread from the baker and of course beer from the monastery! Fish is smoked by the fisherman and knieperties are baked for the children. But the well-to-do bourgeoisie wants a little more luxury, they prefer to eat a dinner with several courses, where it is almost as important that the food looks expensive, as the taste!

With the tasting card (€ follows) you can taste the culinary snacks from prehistoric times, Roman times and Middle Ages for yourself! The tasting card will be available online and at the entrance in due course.
