This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from Ein Buch von guter spise (Germany, ca. 1345 - Alia Atlas, trans.), entitled "6. Ein kluge spise (A clever food)". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]

The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

6. Ein kluge spise (A clever food). Diz ist ein kluge spise. Ein hirn sol man nemen und mel und epfele und eyer und menge daz mit würtzen und striche ez an einen spiz und bratez schoene und gibz hin. daz heizzet hirne gebraten. daz selbe tut man einer lungen die gesoten ist.

This is a clever food. One should take a brain and flour and apples and eggs and mix that with spices and spread it on a roasting spit and roast (it) fine and give out. That is called roasted brains. One does the same to a lung that is boiled.
