Following the method that Johnna used for the aforementioned books on sugar sculpture, I did the same search with "Dinners and dining" (a descriptor mentioned in some of the sugar sculpture books). Here are the results, however there are only few books before 1600:


One of the books before 1600 is this one:

famoso convito : cosi delle giostre come del banchetto, che lo
illustrissimo & eccel. s. duca di Piacenza, & di Parma, ha
fatto della mag. città di Piacenza nello anno M.D.LXI
The last page is blank
Keywords: Farnese, Ottavio, 1521-1586; Carnival; Dinners and dining

Starting on from image 18, there is a description of a "honoratissima cena", which includes lists of the food.
