Various foodstuffs and certain dishes are closely linked to different social and cultural spheres and circumstances. Looking at late medieval sources from Salzburg and there modern day interpretations and imitations, this sessions explores and connects the commemorative aspects of food. As a first example the entrance of the newly elected prince-archbishop into the town of Salzburg, not only as a means of representation and documentation of the new rulership but also constituting a place of remembrance will be focused on. Based on various examples, the procedure and the role of the banquet are examined. The second paper deals with bourgeois feasts in the late Middle Ages in Salzburg, as public occurrences which should compensate for the diminished authority regarding the city governance of Salzburg.The third and final field of investigation of this session should examine the medieval gastronomy of Salzburg and its sustainability within and influence on the subsequent memory culture. Examples range from edible traditions and festivities to recipes.
