The Meat Of An Old deer Or hare Causes Melancholy


This is an excerpt from Das Kochbuch des Meisters Eberhard
(Germany, 15th century - V. Bach, trans.)

The meat of an old deer or hare causes melancholy, bad dreams and bad thoughts. But roast hare nourishes people who have been struck by the paralysis [palsy?].

Item eins altenn hirschen fleysch vnd hasen fleisch macht melancolej, pöß trawm vnd pöß gedennckenn. Doch eins hasen gebrotenn genert den menschenn, den das parliß geschlagen hat.
