The Medieval Cookbook


| /

Drawn from 14th- and 15th-century sources, including works by Geoffrey Chaucer, and carefully adapted to suit the modern kitchen, this beautifully illustrated cookbook explores the traditions and tastes of authentic medieval cookery. This book is a brand new treatment of a mouth-watering collection of recipes inspired by Medieval manuscripts, from the fall of the Roman Empire to Henry VIII's break with Rome in the 1530s. While considering the relationship between food and religion and the differing diets of the rich and poor, this book provides a diverse selection of recipes that capture the essence of dining in Medieval times. Illustrated throughout with stunning scenes of food, feasting and cooking from paintings, tapestries and drawings, this is a perfect gift for foodies and cooking enthusiasts or those with an interest in history and medieval society.
