Time for me once again to provide this NewsGroup with additional evidence of the fact that Nostradamus' recipes books are not what they appear to be but are his prophecy hidden under the guise of innocent-looking books about... recipes. I shall do so here using the title page of the 1555 Antoine Volant edition:

The original page can be consulted on Mario Gregorio's website at the following address.

01. --------- E x c e l l e n t    &     m o u l t
02. ---------- utile Opuscule à touts necessaire,

20. --------------------- A   L Y O N
21. ---------- P A R   A N T O I N E   V O L A N T
22. --------------------- M.  D.  L V.

When decyphered via the technique of the cryptic anagram, this 22-line title produces the following hidden text:

01. ------- « M o n    e x c e l l e n t    t e x t e
02. --------- ici est mon Oracle sus l'esté UU Sept
03. --------- qui te dit - ô mon si cher Paris !

08. ---    la première cité de France ose maudire
09. --- ce rude texte de son illustre Nostradamus
10. --- & ma belle France

11. ---    chasse mon bon La Trémouille, car son

13. --- - le sort que cest US veult tirer à T'ien an Men

16. ----    de Paris en ce si fol Treize Aoust MM
17. ---- Dix Sept est Hélas! sur vne Concorde

20. ----------------------- A   N Y É
21. --------- À   P A R I S,   L E   V O U L A N T
22. ------------------------ V I L.

Now we know why Nostradamus, describing what happens to those who have not heeded his prophecy, uses so many different cooking analogies, as he repeats that the Parisians are cooked, boiled, fried, etc., by the big Atom of their Dear U S.

And we also know that Nostradamus' entire published works are a hidden prophecy about the future destruction of Paris, in Year Seventeen (2017).

Oh, you want the hidden text in English? Thought so. Here goes:

My excellent text here is my Oracle about the Summer
Seventeen
[litt.: UU and Seven] which tells thou - O my
so dear Paris - that the US thought to cook Peking that
Summer XUII and kills thou, O Paris!", and the first
city of France dares to curse this rude text of her
illustrious Nostradamus, and my beautiful France chases
away my good La Trémouille, as his book dares to set
here in Paris a Hell from the US - the fate which this
US wants to shoot at T'ien an Men (the Chinese words
for Heavenly Peace), but the Atom shot by the good
Friend of Paris on this so foolish Thirteenth of August
MM and Seventeen is - alas! - on a Concorde here in
France, according to the book by Claude who illuminates
my rude Oracle which was denyed in Paris, wishing it
vile.

There we have it. Once more, Nostradamus cannot resist at hiding his terrible secret everywhere, even in the title page of a book of recipes.

Clever, eh, this Nostradamus?! :-)
