Book suggestions:
All the King's Cooks by Peter Brears.  Also Tudor Cookery, same
author.  Brears is currently my late-period expert.
All the King's Cooks would a a good resource as it's all about Hampton
Court Palace's kitchens, which are opened for Boxing Day annually, and
Brears was in charge of the cooking when they first opened in 1999,
and wrote the book.

That said, what sort of recipes are you looking for?  I own AtKC and
have my hot little hands on Tudor Cooking, so I can supply recipes and
info from same.
