Title: Taste the past!
Post by: Captain America on June 12, 2014, 05:30:46 pm
Hello chaps, while revising I've had a lot of time on my hands and have had to cook for myself. I've been having a crack at some reenactment recipes which I figured I'd share with you guys! First up is the standard fare for the French Poilu of the First World War Rata de "Singe", which loosely translates to monkey stew (corned beef issued was branded "Madagascar", and les Poilus assumed that the only meat from Madagascar could be monkey). Many thanks to the 151ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne for the loose recipe.


300g Corned Beef

140g Waxy Potatoes

30g Fresh Carrots, or
30g Dried Vegetables (peas, lentils, turnip, zucchini/courgette)

30g Navy/Haricot beans

Water (amount can vary, but enough to boil the ingredients in)

Between 0-500ml Red Wine (optional, the average Poilu tended not to cook with his pinard ration, though it is not unheard of)

1 Bay leaf

Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Throw it all in a pot, bring to boil, and leave to simmer for several hours.

2. Plate up, enjoy with a splash of pinard, a cup of jus (coffee), or a tot of Eau de Vie from the regimental cooperative.

Bon appétit!

I'll post whatever I decide to cook tomorrow, might be something ACWy. If anyone has any recipes or pointers please do share no matter the period, I do quite fancy some medieval or Napoleonic grub to have a crack at!

I'm sure I have a ton in my old Horrible Histories books. I'll have to have a look through them, as for medieval recipes, I'd have to see what our authenticity officer's dug up.

Cooked Shakos, anyone?

Shakos are sort of tough and textureless - I've never been a fan. Boiled forage caps with pinches of salt and thyme have always done it for me. Slow roast them over a fire afterwards for some extra crunch and zest, but I understand not everyone has time for that afield.

For a quick snack dried roasted stovepipes are pure gold. Best source of protein for that long tactical.

Not lived till you've tried flamegrilled Ushanka, best before 1945, fish fur has a special pork-like texture when cooked

Alas, tonight was a drinking rather than eating night. Here's a recipie that I've seen a British rum ration issued to according to Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon from the First World War:




1.Make a cup of tea.
2. Add rum.

God save the King and all that, I can attest to the fact that stand-to tea is a damn good use for tea and rum!
