Tales of the colorful and sumptuous way of life enjoyed by the monarchs and nobles of the Middle Ages - and the considerably less splendid lives of their subjects - continue to enchant and stimulate modern readers. Here for their delectation is a delicious and beautifully illustrated survey of the Middle Ages and its food. Each section has an introduction which sets the historical and literary context and is then followed by recipes updated for the modern cook. The book ends with a chapter on herbs and "simples" - medicinal herbs that produced cures for many everyday troubles, based on long experience and often helped by a dose of folk magic.
