And here’s a recipe you’ll want to try from her latest book, Seeking Fortune.

                                  Recipe for Roasted Hedgehog

According to Medieval experts, the hedgehog should have its throat cut, be singed and gutted, then trussed like a pullet, then pressed in a towel until very dry. Roast and eat with cameline sauce, or in a pasty with wild duck sauce. Note that if the hedgehog refuses to unroll, put it in hot water. The Rom would have dredged the hedgehog in black pepper after cooking.

Although I can’t personally verify the results, here’s the recipe modified from Medieval cookery:

Method:
Season the meat. Wrap it in long grass, first lengthways, and then tying more grass crossways to secure the green wrapping in place

Prepare your barbecue and place a large pot filled with water on it. Cook the meat for two hours. Once the meat has cooked, remove the grass, then place the meat back in the barbecue to sear. Carve and serve.

Nettle pudding can be boiled in the same pot and served as an accompaniment.
(Sorry, I don’t have a recipe for Nettle pudding.)
Enjoy!

Seeking Fortune A Regency Inspirational Romance

“There are lies more believable than the truth.”

Blurb for Seeking Fortune:

Losing his wife and daughter to influenza shook James Colchester’s faith in God. As another epidemic threatens, he’s torn between what’s best for his fragile son: fleeing to his Welsh homeland, or staying put. In a moment of weakness, the black-haired, green-eyed Gypsy’s delicate touch on his palm quells his fear…and her beauty ignites a warmth he hasn’t felt in years.

Desperate to return to her people, Valentina Rupa goes against every lesson her mother taught her to soothe the Englishman into a false sense of security. But as James’s quiet faith sparks a hunger to know it for herself, she realizes she’s made an unforgivable mistake. One that could rob James of his most precious gift—and destroy their chance for lifelong love.
