Tart de Brie
(Brie the province)

—Take a crust an inch deep in a vessel (line the vessel an inch deep with pastry). Take raw egg yolks and ruayn cheese (cheese made from later season milk, not the same as Brie as it is too soft to grate, see loseyns) and mix this and the yolks together. Add to this, powdered ginger, sugar, saffron and salt and pour this into the crust then bake it and serve it forth.
