What did the brothers Van Eyck, when painting the Lambs god, eat? And how did food tasted and changed during the centuries? This and other question will be answered in this interesting online cooking workshop with ingredients and stories from the past and a message for the future.

Preparation of Smakeleycke (tasteful) cookies:

First we're going virtual wild-picking on the famous Lamb God's painting, take an archaeological dive into medieval cesspools and collect the ingredients for a homemade beneficial gingerbread. This according to an experimental, but historical recipe and with a lingering aftertaste for an liveable future.

A package of ancient ingredients and spices will send to each participant.

All the ingredients that have a long shelf life, what was important in the old days, and since the recipe traditionally does not contain dairy, eggs or other animal ingredients, with the exception of honey, the cake would be completely vegan.
This makes the cake surprisingly up-to-date! When the gingerbread is ready we will taste it together, while I take you back to the Van Eyck years.
