Recipes »Orange Omelette for Harlots and Ruffians

orange omelette for harlots and ruffiansIn the 1430's a man named Johannes Bockenheim (the pope's chef) wrote a cookbook with very little detail to the actual making of the things, but lots of detail as to who should consume them. By class, nationality, gender, he apparently liked the idea of food being segregated and organized.

This recipe called Orange Omelette for Harlots and Ruffians was pretty self explanatory as to who was meant to eat it, but I'd be less literal with the word “omelette”. It's really more like a mildly sweet custardy egg thing.

It would go well with some salty breakfast ham or bacon.
