The Third Day of the Writing of the Book of the Law
~ Unto Ra-Hoor-Khuit ~ Celebrated on April 10
This is the third and last day in our series of the Three Days of the Writing of the Book of the Law, which is unto Ra-Hoor Khuit. In the third chapter we have several references which lend recommendations as to what should be offered in this menu. Ra-Hoor-Khuit is the active and solar force of Ra. His character is identified as “a god of War and of Vengeance” and we are told to “worship me with fire & blood“. Also, “I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.” All of these statements tells us that the redness of a battle’s blood should be represented, and the flavors should be bright, strong, and hot. So for this menu, bold, robust flavors are needed, and all foods that are red, spicy and fiery. Foods which best meet this description are the bright and spicy foods of Mexico and Spain. So the following menu draws from both of these countries for a proper offering unto Ra-Hoor-Khuit.
On the following pages are the full menu for the feast of Ra-Hoor-Khuit, as well as sample recipes from some of the meal’s courses, read on to continue:
