Manuscript Summary
This manuscript is the only textual witness of this culinary treatise written in the year 1420 by Maître Chiquart, chef for the first Duke of Savoy, Amadeus VIII (1383-1451). The text was dictated to Jehan de Dudens, a scribe and notary from Annecy. The manuscript also contains descriptions of two banquets organized by the Duke of Savoy, followed by aphorisms, etymological annotations and glosses. The manuscript was part of the library of Bishop Walter Supersaxo (ca. 1402-1482) and his son Georges (ca. 1450-1529). (tog)
