Truly in the musings department: this article (here) really caught my attention. A group of academics is planning to digitise a medieval cookbook and upload the contents for anyone to study. The cookbook is written in Middle English, and totally incomprehensible to me, but I love the idea.
Cooking (as long as it is in my own kitchen, set up specifically to match my rhythms!) is something I thoroughly enjoy, so playing around with "brand new" recipes of this calibre could be a whole lot of fun.
But, I can't read the damn thing, check out the recipe for curry to see what I mean. (You can download a full image from the cookbook here.)
