Dayboard: Push for Pennsic - 16th & Early 17th Century Italian Dishes

  Served July 9, 2022, for Aveline de Ceresbroch Earlier this month I had the opportunity to cook for a dear friend and prepare a dayboard for the Push for Pennsic event held in my hometown of Troy, Ohio. The event was hosted by the Marche of Havenhold. This was a fun meal to put together and I am grateful for the opportunity to have done it. Thank you Aveline for asking :-) I was able to work with a few recipes that I did not think I would be able to do on a much larger scale. I learned quite a few new things, and, several recipes will be making an appearance again! Most of the recipes can be found in "The Opera of Bartolomeo Scappi" . However, two of the recipes are found in Bartolomeo Stefani's " L' Arte di ben cucinare" , available for free on Google Books at the link in the title. I had to translate from the original language into English, and then construct the recipe. Lastly, Project Gutenberg's "A Book Of Fruits And Flowers" by
