Partridges. Take boiled partridges and cut-up chickens with savory herbs, salt, and good spices ground in a mortar; and fry said meat with lard, set it to cook in a pot with a little water, and put almond milk in it; and at the end of its cooking time, add coriander: dilute with its broth, and make a granulated broth, if you like. In a similar way you can make peacocks, pheasants, young chickens, and little birds.
