I expect, on top of the argument that a half-cup is a lot of spices if  
that's what was meant, that His Grace would refer to the spice powder  
as Duke's Powder, and hippocras, which has been strained through a  
Sleeve of Hippocrates, would be the wine.

More or less. There were a ton of viable leftovers (some pulled pork,  
a container of pommes boulangere, about a quart of beef quasi-korma --  
dairy-free, made with coconut milk and almonds, and some basmati pilau  
to go with it) we really needed to use up...

woman eats more than the teenager and the large middle-aged man...
