What are these three? The others certainly are not straight forward,  
and I doubt there can be an answer. At least not one based on an  
actual, written food recipe.

<<< But the other two have me a bit mystified:
- anything 10th C. Cornish
- anything 12th c. Italian

There's a nice amount of later Italian, but i'm not sure about
recipes from the 1100s.

And Cornish from the 900s? Help!  >>>

I do have this file in the CULTURES section of the Florilegium. No  
mentions of food there, but several books are mentioned and perhaps  
one of them will lead to others.

I might suggest starting with Welsh recipes and working with them.  
Even then I think you will be working with later Welsh recipes and  
working back in time as well as over a bit in location.

I will be very interested in seeing what other people and your new  
Wooden Spoon come up with.
