This book is at least a "B" quality production. It seems a book based on accurate research. I see nothing objectionable. The book has plenty of interesting images.
There is a movement for "whites" to regain that part of their culture that had been cast aside over centuries. This book is a part of that movement. It harks back to how our peasant-forbears survived hard times, which the vast majority of European-extracted people come from. This is not a book of the 1% so-called "nobles" (who, by the way, called themselves "noble" to counteract that they came to power by slaughtering hundreds of thousands of "peasants") -- slaughtering humans is not "noble." This is a book for the 99% who have always fought for existence, nothing coming to them easily.
My guess is the April 11th reviewer is prejudiced against Paganus/Pagans. I recommend this book.
Five stars (*****).
The recipes are listed in drinks, hors d'oeuvres and side dishes and salads of the day. Then there are the main dishes that echo back to me personally. Having lived in Ireland and the UK for most of my life, I can say that many of these foods still exist in one form or another, and know their backgrounds. The section on sweets is well researched as well. Can you say Jumbles? Overall I think this will prove a nice addition for medieval and renaissance enthusiasts, largely because it just does not talk about a scant few recipes with little flair. Quite to contrary, this book is mostly flair and comforting to read. This book's ace with me. And I love the self-snap at the end. Looks like a James Bond villain.
