At Gulfwars XXV, I found a few small pamphlets of cooking recipes I liked. The ones I had the most interest in were not as well documented as a one I had only a passing interest in but new a few people who would want more. I started looking at the sources for the recipes going “I’ve got that one, and that one…Oh! I don’t have this one! I need to find it.” Yeah. De Nola’s book has one found translation and it’s only on line (That I can find).
The recipes are interesting including the use of cat fat as a way to reduce asthma… I don’t ask I just find. Nope, not going to make this recipe…just no. The more useful find is that this book is the first and only book I have found that actually lists orange water. I have not found any other listings in period cookbooks with this. So this is a pretty big thing for period cooking!
