Æ Royal Encampment Meal

August 1999

Lady Katja Davidova Orlova Khazarina





2 lbs. assorted oranges, plums, bananas, melon, strawberries, grapes, peaches

sweetened mascarpone

Mascarpone, cream, vanilla, confectionery sugar

24 HB eggs & 2 lbs. bacon


6 C flour 3 C sugar 12 tsp. bkg powder 1 tsp lemon rind

18 T butter 2 tsp vanilla 6 eggs 3 tsp. lemon extract 1 C milk 1 lb. butter 1 C honey

Preheat griddle. Combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Rub in the butter. Add the raisins, egg, and extract. Add enough milk to make a soft dough. Griddle for 6 minutes a side.


Beijing Pancakes

8 C flour 4 C boiling water

4 T roasted sesame oil oil for griddle

Sift the flour into a bowl. Pour in the boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon until all the flour is incorporated and a dough has formed. Dust your kneading surface lightly with flour and turn out the dough. Knead for 10 minutes, or the dough is smooth and soft. Rinse out the mixing bowl. Place the dough in the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand for at least 15 minutes or as long as 3 hours. Cut a piece off the dough, about a third of the total, and leave the rest covered. Working on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a thin sheet, no more than 1/8" thick. Work from the center outward as you roll, turning the dough over and dusting lightly with flour if it begins to stick to the rolling pin. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut an even number of circles out of the rolled-out dough, making 20. Gather the scraps and place them with the covered dough. Paint the top surface of the half of the dough circles with sesame oil. Place an un-oiled dough circle on top of each oiled one. Pour a little oil into a skillet once it is hot, then remove from the heat. Wipe the oil out of the pan with a paper towel. Roll out one double circle until a uniform 1/16th thick, then roll out the remaining circles. Let one cook for one minute. The top should bubble a bit. Turn over and cook for one more minute. Remove from the pan with a spatula. Split apart the two layers and wrap in a towel.

Sautéed Vegetables

4 bell peppers 1 zucchini 4 C broccoli lb. snowpeas

1 lb. mushrooms 4 garlic cloves

Fricassee of Chicken

Slice or cut up the chicken into uniform pieces. Sauté, in stages, in the butter and olive oil, then dump into a Dutch oven. Sauté the onions, then the garlic and add to the oven.
