This website is attached to the publication of the sixteenth-century Dutch cookery book Het Excellente kookboek van doctor Carolus Battus uit 1593, which was published in November 2020. In English: The Excellent Cookbook by Doctor Carolus Battus from 1593. This richly illustrated book was written by Marleen Willebrands en Christianne Muusers, with a contribution by Alexandra van Dongen on material objects. We hope to be able to publish an English edition in the future.
The book contains a lot information, but not all information could fit into the book. That is why we created this website with news, updated links, some downloads and pictures.
