Drakey asked:

<<< ps. Anyone have a consolidate list of period cheese sources
somewhere (Stefan - feel free to jump in here :) ) >>>

Period cheese sources? My, that would be some well-aged cheese. :-)

Since you asked, Drakey, here is what I have in the Florilegium.  
Unfortunately, no consolidated list. However there is this file in  
About-Cheese-art  (12K)  3/ 4/05    "About Cheese" A tranlation by  
Aelianora de
                                        Wintringham of a 1556 letter  
on Swiss
                                        cheese and dairy products.

Unfortunately everything else is going to be a mixture of modern  
recipes, period recipes and redactions. Here are the other cheese  
related files, which are in the FOOD section:
