Rich with the historical sense of taste, this book allows you to cook the rudiments of a medieval royal banquet, an Elizabethan nursery breakfast, or an eighteenth-century tavern lunch. The recipes are dived into five chronological sections, reach preceded by an introduction recounting the fashions and the changes in the food and drink of the period; together they provide an overview of the evolution of the English cookery. The earliest recipes, dating from the thirteenth century, are presented in their original language ("Take faire Mutton that hath ben roste...") as well as in a modern translation, and all measures and quantities have been updated throughout. Many of the dishes are quite simple to make; others are, quite literally, fit for a king. All together they constitute a delectable, sensual celebration of the development of English cuisine."@en ;
