At first, the selection of recipes seemed to be rather quirky. There are many recipes of significant historical interest, but surprising few that seemed to be good enough to try out in my kitchen. In the end, I was rather underwhelmed by this book and do not recommend it, despite the historical importance of the recipes contained therein.
The selection of recipes in this book is puzzling, until you get to the last chapter. Here, you will find many menus for historically important meals, feasts, and events. A majority of the individual dishes for each menu has an asterisk "*" next to it; there is no editorial explanation, but these indicate that there is a matching recipe in the book. So, it seems that the selection of recipes were designed to enable you to recreate these very interesting and historical menus.
The forward indicates that the recipes were "tested by trained home economists", but I question the efficacy of this effort. Most recipes consist of a few, terse sentences. Many involved recipes needing good kitchen skills are casually tossed off. Most recipes require the touch of an experienced cook to correctly execute them.
