Very interesting info, Eduardo- thank you.

Interestingly, one of the conjectural Frankish dishes I did at Egils was 
a carrot dish, of roughly equal parts carrots, parsnips, and fennel, 
briefly sauteed in butter and then braised with broth. I think there was 
parsley in it. (Kelly might remember but she's not on the list.) It was 
basically my rerun of something that Countess Morwyn did years ago, and 
when I asked her about it, she couldn't remember where she found it. We 
thought it was one of the Italian cookbooks, but neither of us could 
find it. But it was delicious!
