So you didn't click on the link? You didn't actually visit the site?
Googling a URL often turns up no result, unless the URL is actually
part of the visible text on a webpage. Most people include links as
some text, with the URL in the HTML so it's not visible and usually
not collected by search engines.
If you look up "What do you know about food in the Middle Ages?"
Google will turn up the link.
Coquinaria has been up on the web for quite some time. I've
downloaded masses of info from it over the years. The author,
Christianne Muusers, is Dutch, and the site is in both Dutch and
English. She has an advanced degree in Dutch language and literature,
and specializes in culinary texts from the Middle Ages onwards. She
covers a wide range of cuisines, but she is focusing on Dutch food in
her studies, so there's some interesting info there. She puts on
dinner parties and the recipes are what she has prepared for them,
with lovely photos of her food.
