Period Recipe

From the Forme of Cury.



  • Bukkenade. Vide No. 118. qu.
  • Hennes; including, I suppose, chicken and pullets.
  • Conynges. Coneys, Rabbits.
  • hit well. This makes no sense, unless hit signifies smite or beat. A word was skipped in this translation; the version in Hieatt and Butler's Curye on Inglysch, where it is recipe 19, says "seeth hit well", or boil it well. Otherwise there is no indication of how the meat is to be cooked.
  • Grees. Fat, lard, grece. No. 19.
  • to to. So again, No. 124. To is too, v. Gloss. And too is found doubled in this manner in Mirrour for Magistrates, p. 277. 371, and other authors.

Modern Recipe




  1. Fry onions and mixed herbs in oil.
  2. Add rest of ingredients and enough broth to make a thick saucy consistancy.
  3. Cut chicken into small pieces, stir into sauce and reheat in frypan

Notes: Galingale was used instead of ginger due to allergy, oil was used in place of grease, and the blanced almonds used where a commercial almond meal.
