No mention of the multiple food and beverage sections in the Florilegium? :-(

Lots of redactions that have been collected over the years as well as some original translations of period cookbooks and manuscripts.

For cooks that are new to Medieval cooking, the original recipes can be quite daunting as they don’t give measures, temperatures or cooking times. They are more like reminders, or short notes, than modern cookbook recipes.  Reading through the original recipes and cooking the redactions offers both consistency and experience with the flavor profiles of Period foods. This basic foundation will be helpful when the cook later attempts their own redactions.
