Thank you for checking. I had stumbled across a recipe for trippa alivetana that called for seasonings of saffron, cloves, salt, pepper, bay, and lemon, the stew thickened with eggs and grated cheese, and garnished with strips of fried eggplant. It's the only trippa alivetana recipe I have come across that called for those seasonings (everything else I've ever found was tomatoes, onions, garlic, and slices of hardboiled eggs) and was garnished with eggplant, so it piqued my curiosity. 

I'll chalk it up as a modern recipe with some medieval sensibilities, periodoid, but not period.

Meanwhile, I'll look up the Andalusian recipes with tripe.
