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. The reader will be grateful for this information about a good table of those times, which the reader will like to discover.

With this book, dinner is served.
