LI To dress a Tench. He who wants to cook a tench, wash it well and give it a little boil in the water, and then of it one opens the meat of the chin-bone and in such a way that the chin-bone does not break, and put the meat in the mortar with a little marjoram or parsley, a little mint, a little whatever, and a little almond milk that is very thick, and grind all these things very well, and return this beaten stuff to the chin-bone and then fry it. Eat it with sauce. If is is so dressed, it should be good.
