      (feel free fo post this to other lists or people)

      Greetings! I've finally managed to get a copy of the 17th century Romanian
      cookbook (translated from slavonic to latin script, however. The original
      slavonic version is not available on the market, unfortunately). It
      includes recipes for food and for other purposes, not all related to the
      kitchen, as you'll see...

      Although I do not have time to post every single recipe (I'm somewhat busy
      as my lady and I are expecting our firstborn in 5 weeks!!!) I thought I'd
      sent the main outlines, and what I've done so far:

      The book includes:

      Recipes for Fish: about 59 recipes (mostly translated)
      Recipes for Caviar: 5 recipes
      Recipes for Crayfish, shellfish, snails, oysters: 23 recipes (only
      translated snail recipes so far)

      5 recipes for hops (? haven't read yet, may be for beer)
      6 eggplant recipes
      6 gourd recipes
      2 turnips recipes
      1 recipe of an unknown vegetable: anghenarii (help, anyone?)

      33 recipes for veal
      8 beef recipes
      9 recipes for sheep/mutton
      4 pork recipes
      1 dove recipe
      11 chicken/hen/capon recipes.
      15 dishes of lamb

      10 recipes for pickled meat and vegetables
      6 fruit recipes (translated)
      10 sauce recipes.
      12 salad recipes (translated)
      8 recipes for sausages, pickled pork tongue, and the like

      11 wine recipes
      16 recipes of cordials and vodka (vutca)

      15 deserts recipes
      2 recipes for rosewater.

      And also, some non-food stuff

      3 recipes for writing ink
      5 on how to clean silverware
      2 on how to remove rust
      3 to prevent weaponsw from rusting

      And finally, 3 recipes of what seems to be... gunpowder.

      Don't hesitate to contact me for more info. Some of those recipes I'll send
      to the list as I translate. However, I will not publicly post recipes for
      gunpowder, for obvious reasons :-))
