Can you please post the Sent Sovi recipe? The original in its 
original Catalan would be nice, as well as a translation into a 
modern Western European language - I'd prefer English, but modern 
Spanish or modern Catalan would be fine. While i can generally manage 
to blunder my way through Medieval/Renaissance Spanish, i have less 
fortune with Medieval/Renaissance Catalan.
