I stumbled across my copy in a thrift store. And considering I did not have 
the internet and all my SCA friends (including a very early cooking laurel) 
were using sources like Food in History and conjecture; I felt lucky to have 
an actual recipe. But boy what I have learned since then- alot from this 
list and it's members.
