One obvious source would be the fifteenth century version of Taillevent's  
Viandier (which also includes several menus from the fifteenth century that  
would not have been compiled by Taillevent himself).

I've done my own  translation of this ("How To Cook a Peacock") but if you 
read French it's  available on-line:


A  number of the recipes in this version are not found in the four 
manuscripts  Scully examined and are probably 15th century interpolations.

I am  working on some research for food from the 15th or 16th Century in  
France.  Trying to put together an idea for a feast with recipes from  this 
period.  any references or recipes would be greatly  appreciated.
