An exhaustive glossary of all ancient words in their various spellings, plus all of the foreign terms, would have taken almost another volume in itself. The glossary is therefore necessarily restricted to the most frequently appearing words and terms, and excludes those that are explained in the text.

This changed slowly, but it was not until the seventeenth century that cookbooks for the nonprofessional became common. Another large frustration today is that old cookbooks often give few or no quantities for ingredients. Measuring tools were essentially nonexistent in kitchens until relatively recent times, so amounts of ingredients are not mentioned, or at best are in old units of measurement. A cautionary note is needed about recreating old recipes. Many of the dishes that appear in this book would not be sensible, safe, ethical, or even legal to eat today.
