New Translation: Excerpts from Wittenwiler’s Ring

A brief post today because I am not writing from home, but the food-related excerpts from Wittenwiler’s Der Ring are done. I belatedly realised there is an extant English translation after all (it can be found here), so this project did not have the urgency I thought it might, but it was still a fun endeavour and I hope you will enjoy the result. The finished translation is here.

And that is the last time I get to post this lovely image. The next week will mark the start of a more conventional recipe source: The Innsbrucker Rezeptsammlung (c. 1450)
