Hope this helps.  Some of these books have recipes, some contain mostly
descriptions of food, food service, etc.  The "Ryori Monogotari" has not yet
been published.  Dame Hauviette d'Anjou, Ii Saboru Katsumori, Abe no
Akirakeiko and I are working on publishing Ii-dono's translation.  At this
point, I can't really share recipes beyond what I handed out at the
Midrealm's Cooks' Symposium last fall.  If you want those, let me know and
I'll send you a copy of my class.

Learning is a lifetime journey…growing older merely adds experience to
knowledge and wisdom to curiosity.
