Angry cook and waiters
From the The Luttrell Psalter, Lincolnshire, c.1330
The 'Forme of Cury' is the name given to the transcript prepared by the 18th Century antiquarian Samual Pegge of a collection of receipts from the Master Cooks of King Richard II. This is the oldest known complete cookbook in English, and one of the oldest extant in Europe. Three editions are known to exist, a complete book version at John Ryland's Library in Manchester, and two partial rolls at the British Library.
The texts are beautifully written on very fine vellum, and lack annotations, so are most unlikely to be the working cooks notes. They might possibly be instructions for approved dishes to be passed on to the aristocratic houses where the King and his retinue were to stay as he made his regular perambulations of the land.
Individual receipts included in the Foods of England Project include: Aquapatys - Bacon and Beans - Blank Maunger - Brasey or Brasill - Buckenade or Bucnade - Bursews - Cabbages in Potage - Chawdron - Chewitts - Chiches (Chick Peas) - Chireseye - Civey (or Cyueye or Cyne) Sauce - Cryspels or Cryspes - Drawen Beans - Farsure - Flaumpens - Fonnell - Frumenty or Furmety - Galandine Sauce - Goose in Hoggepot - Gourd - Gravy - Ground Rice Pudding - Gyngawdry - Gyngener - Hebolace or Herbelade - Herbolade or Erbolat - Honey Mustard - Jusshell or Iuschelle - Loseyns - Macaroni Cheese - Macrows or Maccherone - Mawmenny - Meat Rice - Milk Fritters - Morree or Murrey - Mortress or Mortrews - Moy or Moill - Mustard - Nesebek - Pea Soup - Poached Pears - Pochee - Pork and Egg Pie - Potato Crisps - Potwise or Potews - Rice Pottage - Rice Pudding - Salmon - Sambocade - Sops or Soppes - Soup Dorye - Spinee - Subtleties - Tartlettes - Yrchins
The Foods of England Project is currently preparing a new edition of 'The Forme of Cury' for publication in conjunction with the University of Manchester John Rylands Library.
A ROLL OF ANCIENT ENGLISH COOKERY.

"-ingeniosa gula est." MARTIAL.
TO GUSTAVUS BRANDER, Esq. F.R.S. F.S.A. and Cur. Brit. Mus.
I return your very curious Roll of Cookery, and I trust with some Interest, not full I confess nor legal, but the utmost which your Debtor, from the scantiness of his ability, can at present afford. Indeed, considering your respectable situation in life, and that diffusive sphere of knowledge and science in which you are acting, it must be exceedingly difficult for any one, how well furnished soever, completely to answer your just, or even most moderate demands. I intreat the favour of you, however, to accept for once this short payment in lieu of better,
or at least as a public testimony of that profound regard wherewith I am,
Your affectionate friend, and most obliged servant, St. George's day, 1780.
