Food and eating in medieval Europe

Martha Carlin (Editor), Joel Thomas Rosenthal (Editor)
The essays in this volume approach their subject from a variety of angles: from the reality of starvation and the reliance on "fast food" of those without cooking facilities, to the consumption of an English lady's household and the career of a cook in the French royal household.
