Culinary star Max Miller’s TASTING HISTORY is a delicious blend of culinary skill and historical perspective that takes its cues from such popular foodie programming as Alton Brown’s Good Eats and The Great British Bake Off. TASTING HISTORY’s weekly format gives viewers a window into how certain Medieval recipes were made and offers a look at such historical bites as 400-year-old Buttered Beere, garum, pancakes, and much more!
Just in time for the close of spooky season, Max has offered Rue Morgue an exclusive peek at his episode on Soul Cakes: the cross-adorned snacks that have long been associated with the Gaelic festival of Samhain (the precursor to the modern-day Halloween) in the British Isles. With a healthy dose of history and his remarkable culinary skill, Max will show you how to bake Soul Cakes good enough to wake the dead and bring them back for seconds!
Feast your eyes on the Rue Morgue exclusive teaser below, and check out the Soul Cakes episode when it premieres on TASTING HISTORY this Friday, October 30th, 2020. In addition, follow Max Miller for more tasty Medieval treats on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
