Speaking of Le Menagier, there is yet another translation out (Gina Greco 
and Christine Rose, 2009).  I've lost track of how many there are into 
English and their degree of completeness.  I tried digging around in the 
Florilegium, but didn't see an article similar to the one(s) that compare 
Apicius translations.  Is there one, or do people here have strong 
opinions?  All I have at home is an old photocopy of the Powers version.
