Antonia asked for Spanish recipes and then clarified with:
<<< I apologize for being so vague. I am 16th century Spanish persona
looking at that time frame of cooking utensils, spices, and so on.
for the help! >>>
I'm afraid that most of what I have in the Florilegium is classified
more by food item or type or by culture and not by time period.
However, here are a few suggestions.
In the FOOD-BY-REGION section:
fd-Spain-msg (176K) 1/29/08 Food of medieval Spain. Cookbooks.
Some New World foods started to show up in Spain and Italy during the
16th Century. There was a close connection between parts of Italy and
Spain during this time, so this file may be of use:
NW-Fds-Italy-art (62K) 10/15/06 "A time for change: new world foods
world menus", by Mistress
In the FOOD-BOOKS section there is this file. I can't remember how
many are from Spain:
16thC-cookbk-bib (11K) 3/ 2/00 A bibliography of 16th C. cookbooks.
Again, since many of the New World foods were showing up in Spain
during the 16th Century, some of the recipes for these foods show up
in my files on those specific food items such as:
In the FOOD-SWEETS-DECORATED section:
chocolate-msg (130K) 2/29/08 History and description of early
3-Span-Sweets-art (13K) 4/26/01 Three Spanish sweet dishes from de
(Sorry, I can't remember the time for these, but probably worth a
In the the FOOD-VEGETABLES section:
16C-Tomato-art (16K) 9/ 5/02 "Sixteenth Century Italian and
Tomato References" by Johnnae
Helewyse de Birkestad, and
peppers-msg (60K) 4/18/08 The introduction of peppers to Europe.
potatoes-msg (142K) 5/15/08 Period white and sweet potato use.
tomato-hist-art (18K) 2/ 1/99 "You say tomato I say Xitomatl" by
Xaviar the Eccentric.
Tomatoes-art (22K) 10/15/06 "Love, Death or Mere Curiosity? The
in Renaissance Europe" by
Kestryl of Highwynds
tomatoes-msg (34K) 1/17/05 Tomatoes in period.
In the FOOD-BREAD-GRAINS section:
maize-msg (64K) 1/10/08 Discovery of maize (Indian corn)
Americas and its introduction
Another approach that a lot of people find useful. Plug "Spain" and
maybe "16th" and "recipe" into the search engine available on the top
page of the Florilegium.
I hope this helps.
