Invito alla mensa del mercante del Trecento/ An Invitation to the Table
of a Merchant of the Trecento: Usi, arnesi e ricette della cucina
medievale / Customs, Utensils and Recipes in the Medieval Kitchen
edited by Rosanna Caterina Proto Pisani, translated by Josephine Rogers

This is the cookbook of the Museo di Palazzo Davanzati and comes from
the material produced in the period 1980-1990 by Maria Fossi Todorow in
collaboration with Mina Bacci, Chiara Baldasseroni, Maria Paola Masini,
Maria Luisa Selvi and Cristina Valenti. The cooking culture of Medieval
Italy is realized in color reproductions of works by Lorenzetti,
Buoninsegna, Cennini, and many others. Kitchen utensils are described
and illustrated, and some original, hand-written recipes are faithfully
reproduced, deciphered, and translated into English: Porrata Bianca
(White Leek Porridge), Pollastri Affinocchiati (Baby Hens with Fennel),
Torta di Gamberi (Crayfish Tart) and Fichi Ripieni (Stuffed Figs). 48p,
col illus. (Edizioni Polistampa 2009)
