Robert May (1588?-1664) was one of very few cooks in England who received extensive training in English and French training (and even some Spanish and Italian). May was the son of Edward May the cook for the Dormers of Ascott Park, a wealthy Catholic family.  “W.W.,” May’s biographer, believed that it was the Dormers’ and his father’s influence that led to May studying cookery in France for five years. After his training, May worked with his father and cooked for the Dormers. He was chef to a numer of other Catholic families within the Dormers’ social circle as well.

May’s biography prefaces his book, The accomplisht cook, or, The art & mystery of cookery. May included incredibly detailed descriptions on how to prepare flesh, fowl, fish, or any other manner of à-la-mode curiosities.  The book includes small woodcuts throughout, but the most exciting features are the fold out diagrams for making all manner of pies.  Two whole chapters are dedicated to the many ways to make pies! If you are making a fish pie the crust better show the shape of the fish you are preparing!

The Oubliette of Eternity is fricking hilarious to me in a really morbid way. Time Lord criminals were dispersed and erased from time, so logically, they never existed and nobody ever remembered dispersing them. Obviously, there were records of its use, but nobody but Sentris thought to ever check them. Amazing. Truly my favorite example of Time Lord incompetence. A+ guys.

Time Lord incompetence never fails to entertain.

Doctor: Do you ever look in the mirror and think, “I’ve seen that face before?”
Barney: Yes.
Doctor: Really? When?
Barney: Well, every time I look in the mirror.
Doctor: Oh, yes, yes, yes. Fair enough. Good point. My face is fresh on, though…
