A slice of “grete pye”, anyone? The Medieval Cookbook includes recipes inspired by those in medieval manuscripts, which are surprisingly tasty to the modern palate!
The book also looks at the social history of food from the fall of the Roman Empire through to the Dissolution. Author Maggie Black explores the relationship between food and religion, and discusses the difference in diet between the medieval rich and poor.
The book is richly illustrated, and a fantastic read for both chefs and historians.
