1.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors October 12, 2012

Whilst some research was obviously done to write this article, it contains many errors. Needs editing and correction of grammatical mistakes.   One star

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing! May 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for information about actual medieval food, don't bother with this book; it is riddled with inaccuracies and outdated information. Also, it is very poorly written, it reads like a high school paper; for instance, did you know that the musicians played in the "mistral's gallery"? I didn't either, before I read this book, I thought a mistral was a type of wind.

1.0 out of 5 stars Many, far better, books on this subject April 5, 2013

There are some good recipes in this book, but it is brief and very poorly written, with so many grammatical and syntactical errors that it is sometimes difficult to determine what the author is trying to say. There are also some factual errors and unwarranted assumptions. For a better written book with a far larger selection of recipes and broader history, try "Fabulous Feasts" or "To the King's Taste."

This was terribly written. The author does not understand about pluralization and the use of apostrophes (or, as one might find in the book: "apostrophe's").

There are cringeworthy factual errors: the inclusion of new-world foods such as pumpkin among the standard medieval diet, and the bizarre choice of listing "veal" and "calf" as separate meats.

Utterly painful to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but... November 5, 2012

the formatting isn't doing the book any favors. It got a little tedious. The 'recipes' look fun though; might be brave enough to try some of them!

Format:Kindle Edition
There are some inaccuracies in the facts presented, especially the content about cheeses. I was disappointed, because I loved the cover art and enjoyed the easy writing style.

Not really very informative. The author didn't seem to mention the use of pie crusts as a food preservative/encasement rather than a delicate pastry.
