A Recipe for Roast Partridge. Clean it and place it on a spit, pound its entrails and beat them with two eggs, pepper, cinnamon, Chinese cinnamon, lavender, two spoonfuls of oil and one of murri. Roast it over a moderate fire and at a distance from it. Grease the inside and outside with this filling continuously until it absorbs it and is lightly browned. Put it in a dish and cut rue over it and sprinkle it with pepper and cinnamon and present it, God willing.
