Newly-discovered 12th century recipes to be recreated at Dur

Postby johnna » Tue Apr 16, 2013 9:02 pm

Newly-discovered food recipes from a 12th century Durham Priory manuscript have been found to predate the earliest known ones by 150 years. The recipes are to be recreated at a Durham University event later in the month.

The Latin manuscript mainly consists of medical potions and was compiled and written at Durham Cathedral’s priory around 1140. The work was recently re-examined and found to contain the recipes which experts believe are the oldest in the western medieval culinary tradition, preceding the previously known examples from circa 1290. The manuscript is now held at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University.
