Odin's Longship

Ingredients used in Odin's Longship


  • crispy chicken breasts
  • cantaloupe melon
  • honey roast ham
  • hard boiled eggs
  • orange jelly


Before starting, if you intend to do this properly, as well as all the essential chef's utensils, you will need a Bowie knife and a Viking hand axe. If you are a real Viking, first kill the chicken and then remove the pips. If not, you can use ready-prepared chicken slices as per this recipe.

Chef Andrew macerates the jellied eggs with the Bowie knife

Cook the chicken breasts in the oven until done. Then cut the cooked chicken pieces into slices with the Bowie knife and set aside.

Sever the melon into quarters using the axe, and remove all the seeds. Finely chop the boiled egg. You can be fairly savage with the knife when doing this. Then gently macerate the jelly into pieces of similar size and mix them all together with the knife.

Set the ham slices on a plate in an overlapping line and place jellied egg mixture in the centre. Cover these with chicken slices. Wrap the ham around the jelly, egg and chicken to form a loaf, and transfer this to a serving plate. Arrange melon slices on either side in the manner of the oars of a Viking longship.

Charge your glasses and make a toast to Odin!

Andrew: "I can write the recipe in runes but no-one will be able to read it."

Al: "It's like a kind of tapas, but with jellied eggs.
