For a given value of 'European':

Liber de Coquina II (7) 10: sumacia - pan-fried chicken in sumac almond broth

IV (9) 4: summachia: grilled fish in almond-sumach broth or sauce

V (10) 11: Lombard compost - root vegetables and fruit cooked and pickled in a 
honey-mustard sauce that involves cinnamon, saffron, mulberries and sumac
