Also Know That Fine


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

Also know that fine, warm food keeps people in good health longer than coarse, cold food will. All beef, pork and millet are harmful, because they are digested badly. Eating plenty of fine foods such as young chicken, goat and veal is unhealthy for a strong man who has a good stomach and works hard, because it will rot in his stomach.

Item wiß auch, das zarte warme speyß den menschenn lenger in gesuntheyt behelt dann grob kalt speyß. Als rintfleisch, sweynenn fleisch vnd hirß die sein den schad, wann man mag sie nit liederlich verdewenn. Also ist einem starckenn menschenn, der einen gutten magenn hatt vnd ser arbeit vnd zart speyß ist, junge huner, zigenn vnd kalpfleysch dick geessenn ist in vngesund, wann es verdirbt vnd fault in dem magenn.
