Medieval Curry

It is a fascinating fact that the earliest English recipe book was “The Forme of Cury” by King Richard the second’s head chef. No doubt it contained recipes for red hot vindaloos and dhals fit for a king. I read it in a book (“The Chronicles of The Wars of the Roses” general editor Elizabeth Hallam published by Weidenfeld and Nicholson in London 1988 page 153) so it must be true.
