Recipe of the Week Nov 15th
- I'd like to thank Johnnae for send us the that nice selection of German
Mushroom recipes. That was a new resource for me and I'm sure there are
many more collections like it that are for some reason not commonly
available. I'd certainly like to see more of them.
For our recipes this week I've turned back to another out Vehling's
translation of de re cocquinaria I know we looked at a few earlier, but
I wanted to compare that to the second of our recipes this week which
comes from the much later, Anonimo Toscano.

14th or early 15th c. Translated by Vittoria Aureli
 Take mountain mushrooms, boiled, and onions fried in lard, and set
them to boil with spices and other savory herbs, and beaten eggs; and serve.
And one more from the same source:
 Another preparation. Take mountain mushrooms, and boil them; and
throw away the water, then fry them with finely minced onion, or with
the white part of a leek, spices and salt; and serve.
