trout Season Begins In..

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)

Trout season begins in... and lasts till September. The white are good in winter, and salmon-trout in summer. The best part of the trout is the tail, and of the carp, the head.

Item, an eel with a small head, slender mouth, shiny, shimmering, sparkling skin, small eyes, a large body and pale belly, is the finest sort. The other sort has a big head, yellow belly, and coarse brown skin.
