Do you want the original Catalan, the Castillian Spanish, or the
English translation of the Spanish?
I can provide the first and third; as I am on vacation right now, I
cannot oblige with the second.

English (my translation):
Take a casserole that is very clean, and cast into it onions, and
parsley, and mint, and marjoram, which is called moraduj in the
kingdoms of Aragon, with salt and oil, all mixed with water, and set
it all to cook; and when it is cooked, grind these a little of these
herbs, that have cooked in the pot or casserole, with a little of that
same onion.  And when they are ground, blend them with the same broth;
and when they are blended, set them to cook in a clean pot.  And then
take egg yolks, and beat them very well with verjuice or white
vinegar; and cast into the pot all fine spices, and ground saffron,
more rather than less; and when it has cooked a little, remove it from
the fire. And leave it a little while to rest or cool; and then cast
in the eggs little by little; then return it to the fire; and when it
has cooked a little while longer, remove it from the fire and stir it
well constantly and in such a manner that never ceases while it boils.
 And then dish it out.
