|Introduction||After becoming an avid researcher in college, I continued to dig up historical information from the National Library of Spain in Madrid during the decades that I lived there. Suddenly, I realized I had a large notebook/dictionary of words I did not comprehend in Old Spanish from readings of medieval classics like the Archipreste of Hita, Don Quixote etc. While organizing this information it occurred to me to present the word that pertained to medieval cookery and a medieval recipe that has something to do with the word. taken from medieval manuscripts. Each week I prepare three words with pertinent recipes and after trying the recipe, I share it these with you so that you cannot only learn about the etymology of the word but you can try the recipe too! Beside the Medieval Spanish Chef Blog, I am a Airbnb hostess. See pictures of the room I rent out at the airbnb website under "The Most Magical Views of Santiago" (Chile): http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/3184757|
