Medieval Cookery

Postby Marcus Woodhouse » Fri Jan 04, 2008 11:03 pm

Recipes and History, National Heritage ISBN 1-85074-867-5 I doubt I'll ever cook anything from it, but its perfect for the Journal I'm putting together.

I wanted that for Christmas but didn't get it.

I got the Tudor one though, and I agree with the recipes, I'll only cook about two from it.

I can recommend Forme of Cury from teh early english text society, but don't expect much explanation or extrapolation. excelletn book though.

The EETS also has 15thc and tudor ones IIRC

Bought the hubby that for his B'day last year. He's got to translate it before he can use it ! Double the value, hours of fun !
