Kid pastry. Take goat's meat well cut up and sliced sepis [meaning unknown] and fry it in lard; also take a good quantity of savory herbs and saffron, and beat them well, and with this fresh cheese well minced, and mix it with said meat, and put it in a pan over the coals, so that it is somewhat thickened, and make a very thin crust in a tart-pan, and put fried lard between the pan and the dough. Also take enough pepper and meat with the aforementioned eggs, and put them in a pan and make another crust, and put it on top, and put coals above and below.
