Random Medieval Recipe of the Day:

To Make Two Pigeons of One. Skin a pigeon without water-and be careful not to rip its skin -and then remove the entrails; and reverse the whole skin so carefully that it remains whole; where the skin is torn, sew it; then make a stuffing for it as I said above [Recipe 66], and with a needle sew up again wherever you have inserted the stuffing, and boil it; set the other one, that is, the skinless carcass, to roast or to boil; if roasted, get a little grated bread and salt and, when [the carcass is] half cooked, spread this salt and bread together over it; get an egg yolk and beat it well, and baste the pigeon with a feather so as to give it colour, and this way it will look as if it has not been skinned; and so one pigeon will seem to be two.
