How To Cook A Unicorn

The British Library, on its Medieval Manuscripts Blog, announced the near-miraculous discovery in its archives of a long-lost medieval cookbook that included a recipe for how to cook a unicorn. Taketh one unicorne, began the instructions, and then marinade it in cloves and garlic before finally roasting it on a griddle. The cookbook even included hand-drawn illustrations, which the library reproduced, showing exactly how the unicorn should be grilled. The compiler of the cookbook was said to be one Geoffrey Fule, who worked in the kitchens of Philippa of Hainault, Queen of England from 1328 - 1369.
