Richard II’s Cookbook Digitized

, , , , , ,

A 15th century manuscript of the Forme of Cury, a book of recipes compiled by Richard II‘s master cooks, from the collection of the John Rylands Library of the University of Manchester has been digitized, making available online in its original form one of the most famous medieval cookbooks.

The Forme includes recipes for pike, porpoise, blancmange, and even “loseyns” (lasagna), a dish of baked pasta with cheese.
