Anyone interested in learning more about 17th c English food and cooking would love this book. It is not a primary source itself, but rather recreated menus based on the Diary of Samuel Pepys who lived in London in the 1660s. The Authors of this book have studied primary sources to create this book and offer a fuller insight to 17th c London society. References to original sources are given. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This short volume attempts with fair success to translate 17th century recipes for various dishes and drink into usable modern recipes. The originals are included with the translations, and the volume is sprinkled liberally with quotes from the Pepys diaries and other sources as well as explanatory text. There is even a "Festive Feast" dinner with multiple dishes and music suggested.

This is fun reading, and the recipes are also enjoyable to try. How close they come to reproducing a 17th century meal may depend on how much imagination you can bring to the experience.

I just discovered this book while researching 17th-century food. What a beautiful and tenderly created thing!
