Homebaked Shakespeare

Sure, you could go ahead and make a turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy this could make a Thanksgiving feast served up from the pages of Shakespeare! Just steer clear of the mystery meat pie (Titus Andronicus 5.3).


good wine (Othello 2.3)
ale (every play somewhere probably)


cheese and garlic (Henry IV, Part 1, 3.1)

Main Course:

roasted wild boar (Antony and Cleopatra 2.1)
pigeons, short-legged hens, mutton (Henry IV, Part 2, 5.1)
fat tripe finely broiled (Taming of the Shrew 4.3)
ill-roasted egg (for the guests you don't like) (As You Like It 3.2)


stewed prunes (Measure for Measure 2.1)
mustard (Shrew 4.3)


cakes and ale (Twelfth Night 2.3)
strawberries (Richard III 3.4)
dates and quinces (Romeo and Juliet 4.4)
