<<< Now, as to sandwiches.  There's a good recipe for a grilled-cheese
sandwich in Maestro Martino, if one really wishes to serve sandwiches.  

Oh? Interesting. Can someone post the translation of this recipe and/ 
or their redaction? Other than one other possible sandwich recipe  
posted here in the last few years this sounds like the most sandwich- 

I'm afraid that I was not up on the years of all the cooks we've  
discussed, since they haven't all been period, and had to look Maestro  
Martino up. The book listed on Amazon, "The Art of Cooking: The First  
Modern Cookery Book (California Studies in Food and Culture)  
(Hardcover)" does look interesting and perhaps when my budget permits  
I'll buy a copy.

The mention of a "Lenten Caviar Pottage" sounds interesting, although  
also unaffordable right now. They also mention "But much of the advice  
in chapter six, "How to Cook Eggs in Every Way," remains salient  
today." and since I did recently buy a copy of an egg cooking book  
which you all mentioned recently when we were talking about eggs, and  
I bought a cheap copy, it would be nice to compare the two.
