The author of this famous Libro de cozina (Cooking book), is a Catalan man, who lived in the XV century.

He was the principal cook in the royal Neapolitan court.

His experience, and who knows if his helpers or other people favouring in his mastery, would push him to write this book, writing it first in Catalan and translating it later, himself, to Castilian.

This is a first edition, paid for by Pérez Dávila, and printed in Logroño.

They say reading feeds the mind; the reader may experiment with some of his recipes, without forgetting the many interesting details that we require on a decent table on those times.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
