Pies of Good Capons, Cockerels, Pigeons and with Veal. Get lean veal or the meat of the above-mentioned fowl, chop it up with a knife along with a little veal fat; when it is ground and chopped - I mean, in the shape of small playing dice - mix in all sorts of good spices; then make a pastry crust as is used in pies, put the fowl with the meat into it and bake it in the oven; when it looks like they are cooked, get eggs and beat them, verjuice, good spices, fat broth and saffron, mix everything together and put this into the pie through a little hole in the top.
