Editorial Reviews

Review

"In clear prose with a conscience avoidance of scholarly jargon, Albalas text provides a solid overview of Western European food history from 1500 to 1800 with a clear focus on the early modern period....Food in Early Modern Europe provides a useful introductory overview that should serve as a model of scholarship for anyone interested in food-historical narratives, regardless of the time period or region. It is an excellent reference work, equipped with rigorous subject and recipe indexes as well as a detailed biography arranged according to chapters....[a] concisely written and rigorously researched tour of European eating that is not only an excellent reference tool for students but also a springboard for continued scholarship."-H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online
