To Make partridges Of Dough

This is an excerpt from Wel ende edelike spijse
(Dutch, late 15th c. - Christianne Muusers, trans.)
The original source can be found at Christianne Muusers's website

To make partridges of dough. Take salmon from the middle part, all raw, well brayed, and starch enough. Take a small wooden broach and wrap it around the broach in the likeness of a partridge, make it of the stuffing in the mortar (the dough with salmon). Have water on the fire, and put the "partridge" in untill it thickens (?). Then pull out the broach and let a spit turn by the fire. And when it has started to roast, then put spices and sugar on it.
