Do you just want SCA mentioned sources from the Florilegium or do you  
want academic sources?
If the latter, there are several more of course.  John Russell's  Boke  
of Nurture for instance.
A search under such words as medieval English feast menus
will reveal a number of others. Try Google Books or Scholar for more  
that can be searched at home without access to the academic databases  
like Article first or OBO.
