Food in Medieval Times

 
25

Greenwood Press | ISBN 0313321477 |  284 pages
New light is shed on everyday life in the Middle Ages in Great Britain and continental Europe through this unique survey of its food culture. The book draws on a variety of period sources, including as literature, account books, cookbooks, religious texts, archaeology, and art. Food was a status symbol then, and sumptuary laws defined what a person of a certain class could eat -- the ingredients and preparation of a dish and how it was eaten depended on a person's status, and most information is available on the upper crust rather than the masses. Equalizing factors might have been religious strictures and such diseases as the bubonic plague, all of which are detailed here.
