* A Boke of Gode Cookery Recipes
"A Boke of Gode Cookery is James Matterer's collection of medieval recipes which he has translated and adapted for the modern cook. James has been preparing medieval food since 1979 and has been working from period sources and creating his own contemporay redactions since 1989. Each recipe here is derived from his own personal experience in the recreation of that dish. Each recipe contains the original documented medieval version, followed by James' modern translation and redaction, along with notes and a bibliography of the period source. Each page also contains a link to metric, celsius, & gas mark equivalencies for measurements & temperatures."

* A Chaucerian Cookery
"Despite few references to feasts and only a handful of descriptive passages detailing the foods of his period, it is still possible to gather a rather lengthy list of the foods, dishes, livestock, & game that Chaucer mentions in his writings. From The Book of the Duchess to The Canterbury Tales, from drinks to desserts, from Ale to Ypocras, this list represents the broad range of foodstuffs and prepared dishes that fed the average 14th c. Englishman."

* Medieval Gastronomy: In Images
The English version provides mainly images from the on-line exposition. There is some text but it is not very extensive. The images are great. However, the French version is much larger with a tremendous amount of information and details. I would highly recommend spending time in the French version. Even if you do not read French, the presentation is impressive and has a lot more images.
