The late Constance Hieatt's work in editing and interpreting medieval English recipe texts is of long-standing repute. She has published An Ordinance of Pottage with Prospect Books and Curye on Inglysch with the EETS. Other works include Pleyn Delit and Libellus de Arte Coquinaria. Her final edition was of recipes from Corpus Christi College, Oxford, which we titled Cocatrice and Lampray Hay and published last year. Constance Hieatt died at Christmas 2011.
