Well I started into a list of all the 7 plus ( I think I am up to 9  
sources now) that include Martino Corpus recipes and I realized it is  
NOT an e-mail but a short article.
I am away on vacation/Spouse business trip in VEGAS (never been  
before WOW!) and I don't have all my sources electronically so I will  
work up a list and post next week.

I have manuscript copies of both the Vatican and the Library of  
Congress Martino and have spent several hours with the actual Library  
of Congress copy and they are similar, but not identical. I will  
attempt to out line some of the differences in the above short  
article (looks like it is getting longer) but briefly they mostly  
relate to scribal abbreviations. They are also from completely  
different hands and Vatican is much easier to read.


Food is life. May the plenty that graces your table truly be a VAST
