Viktória Albert, Judit Szitó: A story of two pies: structural and functional characteristics of Medieval and Early New English apple pie recipes


DOI 10.51313/Freeside-2022-01

This paper explores the apple pie recipe in its earlier versions: For to make Tartys in Applis (1390) and To make pyes of grene apples (1575), which has been specifically chosen because of its global popularity. The current paper examines some linguistic, textual, and functional peculiarities of these recipes from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives. As the study aims primarily to test Görlach’s textual components and social characteristics (2004) on the selected recipes, it will also provide insight into the interplay between language and socio-cultural relationships during these historical periods.
