Fresh Cod Is Prepared And Cooked Like Gurnet With White wine In The Cooking

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

FRESH COD is prepared and cooked like gurnet with white wine in the cooking, and eaten with yellow sauce; and the salted cod is eaten with butter or mustard. The salted, lightly soaked, tastes too salty, and too long soaked it is not good; and because of this, if you buy it, you must try it in your teeth and eat a small piece.
