This is one of my favorite medieval cookery books It salong the lines of what you can easily do today to have a medieval feast rather than how they had a feast, complete with fleas, 600 years ago Perhaps the food tastes better than it sounds but

Poorly structured, unrigorous, and scattershot Almost purely about English feasts in the late Middle Ages, and not, as it variously pretends, about general Medieval European diets This book came out in 1976 and I m sure I would have been happy to have it back then, but a lot of much better books have been written on the subject over the last forty years.Well over a third of the book is devoted to approximating certain recipes over a hundred of them with ingredients that would be easier to fi Poorly structured, unrigorous, and scattershot Almost purely abou
