As a follow-up to my comment on the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. . .
www.manybooks.net has -- again in various ebook formats -- several
period and just-post-period cookbooks.
The Closet of Sir Kenelm Digby Knight Opened
Forme of Cury
Early English Meals and Manners
Le viandier de Taillevent (untranslated French)
And since many of us are interested in historical cooking that is
outside the SCA period, it's worth just browsing the Cooking genre
section there. A nice selection from the 18th, 19th, and early 20th
centuries, including Mrs. Beeton, The Cyder-Maker's Instructor, and
The American Frugal Housewife.
Lots of other fun things. Across Asia on a Bicycle (Constantinope to
Peking). Ballads of Robin Hood and other Outlaws. Base-Ball: How to
Become a Player (1888). The Code of Honor: Or, Rules for the
Government of Principals and Seconds in Duelling. Astounding Stories
Brighid ni Chiarain
