pittances, a food allowance to a monk or poor person consisting of bread and lard; dishes consisting of solid foods such as meat or fish cooked in broth or roasted (not fried) that were served on talladores (flat wooden plates) and the broth, not a sauce, was served separately. Pietances and cuynes (minced, fried food) were the two major types of food preparations in medieval Catalan cookery. [Lladonosa. 1984:63:159]
