We just had the release party for Ravens of Avalon, for which I brought:

  • 1 lb of skirt steak, cut as for fajitas, served raw with a bowl of kosher salt. What? It's Ravens of Avalon, one needs Raven Chow--served on ice.

  • Oatcakes.


Yes, oatcakes, one of that fine family of flat crackery breads that are variants on a several-millenia-old theme that one can turn vaguely-ground grain into food with a bit of fat, a bit of water, a bit of grain, and a hot surface of any sort. If it were made outta maize, it woulda been a johnnycake. Oatcakes feature in a couple scenes of RoA, so I thought it would be fun to work out how to make them.

Primitive cookery, like any primitive skill, Ain't for Sissies. I did my research, found a few promising recipes, and set to hack something together therefrom.
Experimentation )

And here's the completed recipe:

Oatcakes! )
May be eaten hot or cold, with savory or sweet toppings, as any cracker.

Enjoy!
