CXXXIV - To make a healthy and good meal of "iola". Take much iola about an egg in size, and take much pork belly and let the belly cook and chop it well with the knife and then in a mortar. Likewise to the same make of the "iola" thus cooked and pasted. Take two good cheeses and 6 or 7 eggs and make a paste (with the pork belly) and put to fry in a pan with grease and it will be a good healthy dish, and if you add a "chavo" (specific measurement ? no translation found) of milk this dish will improve, if you do not possibly have fresh pork belly, take brain of veal, or of "boi", they are also good and have in mind that the dish should be of spices fine and sugar and not spoilt, etc.
