The Old Masters – re-interpreted 158

Fiends, roamers and country members, lend me your flappy bits. I come to bury these painters, not praise ’em. The works that these Old Masters did shall live after them – to be ripped asunder by commoners, jesters and adherents to FFC’s page. So let it be with this week’s victim – one Pieter Cornelisz van Ryck, 1604.

Pieter Cornelisz van Ryck 1604 - cook - Medieval Masterchef - a young chefette is advised by one of the judges that Stag rump does not go well with underdone melons

Medieval Masterchef hopeful: “For the final, we’re going to have a few birds around for dinner; Stag’s hindquarter with overdone melons, followed by ice cream in a crone……I’ve got crabs as well, but I’ve got other cream for that.


About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
