Example text

In this period of flamboyance, the court of the duke of Burgundy set the standard by which all others were judged. Duke Charles the Bold, who ruled Burgundy from 1467 to 1477, was as powerful as the contemporary kings of France and England and fancied himself grander than both. His territory stretched from the North Sea, through what was known as the Low Countries to Mâcon in the south, bordered by the Loire river to the west, and Alsace, Luxembourg, and the Rhine to the east. His might was documented by his chief pantler, or master of ceremonies, Olivier de la Marche, whose 41 In the illuminated manuscript Chroniques du Hainault from 1448, Jean Wauquelin presents a book to Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy, who had the foresight to install experts in the new craft of printing beside the traditional scribes in his library in Dijon.

The oldest recipe in this book, for a spicy roast pork called Cormarye, dates back to the late 1300s and the height of medieval feasting. It comes from Forme of Cury, a fourteenth-century manuscript that belonged to Richard II but did not appear in print until the late 1700s. The script of the time can seem almost a code, but this is clearly a recipe for the cook to follow in the kitchen. ” What actually ends up on the plate is difficult to imagine, and recipes were written mainly for the record.

Since brouet implies a broth, I’m assuming the former, so we have pieces of chicken in a broth of striking golden color, garnished with brilliant green parsley leaves. The chicken is cooked twice, first simmered, then fried before serving. Double cooking was a medieval habit, perhaps a health precaution, or else a way of precooking ingredients so they would keep longer. In any case, the chicken ends up well done and falling from the bone—easily pulled apart with a spoon. Poudre fine spices the broth, and the bacon provides salt, so more may not be needed.
