<<< May I present you with Gwen Cat's translation of 20 pre-1600 turkey recipes
from Rumpolt (1581) so you don't have to do "turkey in the style of" or "so
& such made with turkey."

This message and others on period turkeys can be found in this Florilegium file in the FOOD-MAETS section:

And just in case others have had trouble by getting extra blank lines inserted when you pasted from a Word document into an email message, you can solve that problem by first pasting the portion from the Word document into a regular text editor (on the Mac, I use TextEdit) first, then doing a "select all" and copy and paste it into your email message.

Microsoft has apparently started adding additional 'invisible' characters after carriage returns. Pasting into a text editor eliminates these problem characters. Often much easier than deleting all those extra line characters by hand. Thank you, Microsoft. :-(

Those that are getting extra "?"s in their email messages might also try this.
