This is a beautifully written, historically informative, and fascinating cookbook.
These recipes are very brief in their original form so the authors also provide an ingredient list, cooking instructions, and notes for a modern audience.
Highly recommended as a source for a medieval theme entertainment, historical interest, and an understanding of realities of medieval life.
