OK, maybe I have an axe to grind. Once upon a time, I was at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Agoura, California, a paying customer in a pretty good costume. I was approached by two women in better costumes who had a lot of unsolicited criticism of the shape of my hat and the trim on my skirt. All this in front of the Beef Teriyaki on a Stick and Churros stands. Well, so much for the veracity of the Authenticity Police!
Here is a German cookbook from the year 1533, translated into English. Use goodies from here!
You know what? My hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed that old cookbook you posted! He pulled up an extra chair to the desk and we sat right here reading that and talking about it for nearly an HOUR!
Thank you sooooooo much, SeleneSue!
Dang, I should have joined here when Cat first told me about it! *Kicks self*
Sorry, I'm off-topic.
I went to a bunch of Renaissance Faires in Germany when I was stationed there, and I did love the chickens on the spits! And a fine roasted bratwurst was another favorite....oooooo, yummy, with hot, spicy mustard.
