Renaissance Cooking


There is a lot of information available for original recipes from the medieval and renaissance periods. The problem is with some of the words and their meanings. For example if you are looking at an original recipe and it says use a “Rezge or a ray” for the recipe, what does it mean? Well it actually means “fish” but you probably didn’t know that. So I have included a glossary of the terms commonly used in the original recipes along with the generally agreed meanings for each term. These can be found in the GLOSSARY of recipe terms.

The recipes are all taken from the book “Cariadoc Miscellany” by David Freeman and Elizabeth Cook.
