Hippocras And The wafer Dish To Finish

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)
The original source can be found at David Friedman's website

Hippocras and the wafer dish to finish. Hippocras two quarts, and this is more than enough as is said above of the Grenache, two hundred wafers and supplications [another sort of wafer or waffle (JH)]. And note, for each bowl one takes eight wafers and four supplications and four stirrups [yet another wafer (JH)], which is plenty; and cost eight deniers per bowl.
