<<< I am not sure about being period, but I do know that the Basque  
people do/have used a "pancake" made of garlic, herbs, and dried  
blood, NOT as a sauce, but to enrich sauces, stews and the like.  
Heard about this at least 10-15 years ago. >>>

I've only seen a little discussion here about Basque food and what  
little I've got I placed in this file in the CULTURES section of the  
Basques-msg       (28K)  4/29/06    Basque culture, language, names,  

And I also have this one:
Basques-bib       (16K)  9/14/01    A Basque biblio. by Senhora Ester  

The only two food books mentioned in the first are:
Traditional Basque cooking by Jose' Maria Busca Isusi.
"The Basque Kitchen" by Gerald Hirigoyen

The latter one is modern recipes and the first recipes may or may not  
be "period". We know that "traditional" doesn't always mean it goes  
back 400 years.

While the bibliography has quite a number of books, I don't see any  
specifically on food.

So if anyone has any info on period Basque foods or period Basque  
recipes, I'd love to get them.
