The Medieval Cookbook (Revised Edition)
This engaging and informative book takes the reader on a gastronomic journey through the Middle Ages, offering not only a collection of medieval recipes but also a social history of the time. The fifty recipes, drawn from the earliest English cookbooks of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, are presented in two formats: the original Middle English version and a version in modern English adapted and tested for today's cook.
Handsomely illustrated with lively dining scenes from illuminated manuscripts and tapestries in the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum and the British Museum, among others, this book serves up a delightful literary and visual repast for anyone interested in the history of food and dining.
