The pilgrim’s dinner: medieval cookery in Morimondo

What meal would a pilgrim have eaten on their arrival at the Abbazia di Morimondo? Extensive studies of medieval documents have already revealed fascinating insight into religious life hundreds of years ago, but now there are some truly unique real-life experiences to go along with them.

We're talking about the Pasto del Pellegrino [The Pilgrim's Dinner], a lunch with a seasonal menu inspired by medieval cookery at the Abbey. A group of researchers from the parish of Morimondo have been pouring over historic documents in order to recreate exactly what pilgrims would have eaten in the Middle Ages – and they're now serving it up to hordes of curious visitors.

The three-course meal is held in the main hall, with every course accompanied by an explanation. A typical menu includes a fresh herb soup, some pork with lentils and a bread pudding or some onion tart – sounds delicious, right?
