Libellus de Arte Coquinaria: An Early Northern Cookery Book

Libellus de Arte Coquinaria: An Early Northern Cookery Book

by Rudolf Grewe, Constance B. Hieatt (Editor), Constance B. Hieatt

Editorial Reviews

One of the oldest known collections of European culinary recipes in a vernacular language is extant in four slightly different versions in Old Danish, Icelandic, and Low German. The manuscripts of 35 recipes dates not later than the end of the 13th century, but clearly goes back to an original perhaps as early as the 12th. Each of the four is presented in the original facing a translation, then a composite translation of all of them is provided. Vocabularies of the three languages and indices to utensils, procedures, ingredients, and dishes are appended. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
