*[[cheese]]
 
*[[pie]]s
 
**[[fruit pie]]s - Look in that supermarket freezer for apple, pear, apricot or berry pies, but if it's a cold day, ''please'' defrost them. A period example: [[Pear tart (recipe)]]
 
**quiche - there are several period [[tart]]s that resemble a heavily spiced quiche - e.g. [[Ember Day Tart(recipe)]].  Try for a plain quiche without tomato in it, please.
 
**large [[meat]] pies, preferably with other ingredients (not potato), e.g. a period pie with meat and berries [[Caneline Beef Pie(recipe)]]
 
*[[bread]] (remember that the [[autocrat]] often supplies some)
 
*roast [[chicken]] - hot or cold (but be careful of [[food safety]])
 
*cut cold meats
 
*some dips
 
**[[hommus]]
 
**chives and onion???
 
*[[salad]] - was made up of herbs and general leafy stuff, including  flowers and sometimes chopped fruit.  Salad mix may not be a bad approximation to some period salads.
 
*sweet buns - e.g. glazed sultana buns
 
*almond cake (look at the gourmet Italian coffee cakes in the supermarket)
 
*shortbread
 
*Angel's food - a sweet dip that goes well with biscotti or shortbread style biscuits. [[Angels food (recipe)]]
