sorry. i did print it out a while ago. i just so
happended to have my recipe book w/ me as i was preparing
a class for this weekend "follow that feast", for the
curious potential feast steward.
the scenario was an early irish feast as i recall. there
is a lot of congecture with the early period food, much
based on what is available locally at the time and what is
left in writings other than recipes.
the original recipe was a double crust pie. it was
salmon, cheese, and saffron. that recipe called for white
cheddar or a stronger cheese. very basic.
i added the mustard seed because it would have been
available, and also added a bit of texture (as does onion
i am sorry it is busted. it was a great source for early
period ideas and recipes.

sustained him through temporary periods of joy."
