Default Ancient barbarian meals

You know, after a hard day of hacking, fighting,chopping off heads,
strong warriors like Conan the Barbarian needed something good to eat.

So what are your favourite ancient barbarian meals?

The venison and the wild boar (in this case, feral hawg, close enough for
government work, tushes and a bristly ridgeback) will come from my own guns
and larder. Slow-Smoked ham, "Boar" & venison sausage (w/a little added
pork fat, the "boar" having little) and venison backstrap wrapped in bacon
and grilled over coals, served a tart sauce of red currants, "pickled"
shrimp and some smoked mackerel (a gift), Tuscan white beans, grilled
vegetables, and an apricot/almond tart at a family Christmas Eve party. My
baby sister, the OB/Gyn, is handling the wine list, and I suspect that this
year will be "German", but the result will not be very barabaric.

On the other hand, the actual Christmas dinner will be two "iddle bitty
baby" wild hogs, barely more than suckling piglets, roasted whole (avec
l'apple). Tell the barbarians that a .357's better than a boar spear for
the little ones.

The characters in Astérix preferred roast boar.


Except that in Britain the boar was boiled and served in mint sauce.

The Britons also drank their beer "warmed".

Yes, poor beast.

The infamous cervoise tiède...actually, I drank that in Spain when I
lived there in 1967.
