I came across this description this am while browsing in
Jessica's Biscuit. The book was:  From Saint Hildegard's Kitchen: Foods 
Of Health, Foods Of Joy
Description reads:
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was a remarkable woman-a scholar, nun, 
mystic, theologian, physician, and composer. She also possessed, by 
means of heavenly visions, precious knowledge about human nutrition. 
Here are hundreds of *her recipes* for meat, vegetables, salads, soups, 
cereals, pastas, sauces, dips, beverages, jams, coffees, wines and desserts.
Her recipes?
An twelfth century convent serving a selection of dips and coffees?
