'Cooking for Power', why did you title your message as such?
Please enlighten us ignorants a little. I try not to study Aragon as my 
realm in Castile is so vast so I cannot remember Martino's era but I 
thought it after Nola. I thought the Norman rulers went out long before 
Martino you know like soon after Roger the Anjou bring replaced by the 
House of Aragon. Marintino is after Ferran, Alfonso the V's bastard, no???
What does IIRC mean?
Scappi rings a bell. Was he a Borgia cook or am I off? But you know 
there is a great subject there. - The cooks for the Borgias!!! Ha and 
the cooks for the Medicci!!! I seem to remember a Lorenzo in Florencia. . .
