This is one of those cuisines that is a real challenge to research before the 18th century: Jewish food. It’s been a bit of a struggle for me to find what little I have over the years. As I network with other people that are interested in the same historical roots, I’ve been able to find more and more details to my files.
Within the SCA, there was a very resourceful and dedicated researcher (Mistress Judith bas Rabbi Mendel) that put together this document on various types of Passovers throughout the SCA period. It is hosted currently on Stefan’s Florilegium over here
. Since it is that time of the season, I thought it would be a good idea to post this to help anyone out there looking for details like these for pesach.
