Vol. 18 No. 5 of The Storybook Home Journal


What's in this issue?

Of Exercising Hospitality the Decorating article

Hospitality is an art with which most of society could still become much better acquainted, perhaps by practice.  As an aid to its practice it even has its own industry and, unlike civility, you can actually major in it.  Fortuitously, there is a great deal to be learned from those who practice it professionally.  Here are just a few ideas we have adapted for the home from those for whom hospitality is their daily work.

Of Noble Ancestry the Hearth article

Elspeth provides a tutorial in egg tempera techniques, completing the creation of the style of blank-book introduced in The Music Box and bound in The Workshops.

Of the Culinary Art the Kitchen article

In creating recipes to accompany Ivanhoe, we took the same liberty Walter Scott took in telling the tale.  Even today with ever-growing access to information, the amount of demonstrably accurate fact concerning twelfth-century recipes is slim at best.  So, relying upon Scott's descriptions and our best research and ingenuity, the following recipes attempt to recreate something of the loaded lordly boards that were spread in the days of Ivanhoe: Wastel Bread, Simnel Loaves, Baker's Tempera, The Porridge of Plums.

Of the Minstrel Art the Music article

The strains of music loom so large in Ivanhoe that Sir Walter Scott practically provided an accompanying score.  In this issue, The Music Box serves as an introduction to the project featured in The Workshops.

Of the Healing Art the Garden article

We revisit some of the herbs that have disappeared from contemporary crofts for any who may wish to mix a little of the once-magical Medieval flora into their back yards.  And we also champion a few other twelfth century ideas for crafting with herbs whose reliability has withstood the test of time.  Recipes include: Crusader's Crispel, Crusader's Conserve.

Of Gold and Bosses the Workshop article

Turn any sketchbook into a single or double heart-shaped Chansonnie.

Duhg's Secret the Writer's Garret article

Just days before Duhg and Seymore depart for the Isle of Iona, a growing sense that they are being watched compels Duhg to confess that his suggestion of the trip involves far more than a sightseeing excursion.  Duhg's explanation involves the Treasure of Iona, the plight of his brother, hold up for many years in Fingal's Cave on the Isle of Mull, and the notorious lytfolc Robber Clanns of the Isles.
