Sauteed Cockerel or Pigeon. Get whichever meat you like, cockerels or pigeons, clean and quarter it and fry it in good lardo; when it seems well fried, remove most of the grease from the pan; then get verjuice, two egg yolks, fine spices and a little broth, mix everything together with a little saffron and bring the mixture to a boil with the meat, whether chicken or some other meat; then get a little parsley and marjoram, beat everything well and add it to the sauteed meat in the pan. You can make this dish bitter or sweet: [for the latter], get either must syrup or honey or sugar and cinnamon.
