Traditional Christmas Fare...

Postby Nerva on Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:27 am

Salvete Omnes!

Has anybody any idea what the earliest Christmas meals contained? What is the earliest recording of such a meal? I remember being told that Mute Swans were brought to Ireland by the Normans as domestic fowl and I know that swan was eaten at Christmas. Unfortunately there's no record of Roman Christmas fare as it was not celebrated until well after the collapse of the western empire.

What are you eating this year? I'm going for something exotic this year, turkey and ham marinated in a light Dioxin dressing ;)
