Bridget Henisch has tackled an enormous subject, the cook in western Europe, and expertly marshalled evidence throughout the medieval period. MEDIUM AEVUM
It is an attractive piece of work, beautifully illustrated, making the subject highly approachable for the general reader. [...] A useful and highly entertaining introduction to the study of the necessity and artistry of cookery in the Middle Ages. THE RICARDIAN
This admirable book is based on a much wider field than the art of the period. It shows a remarkable range of literary and historical sources. SPECULUM
An accessible overview of medieval culinary practice that will entertain and inform the general public. [...] The general audience will be seduced by the lively medley of cooks and kitchens the book presents. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW
Pour reprendre les termes du professeur Peter Cross de l'Universite de Cardiff, l'ouvrage de l'historienne americaine Bridget Ann Henisch est ecrit avec panache et conviction. Elle entraine notamment le lecteur dans l'univers multiforme des cuisines medievales. L'auteure visit aussi bien celles fonctionelles et propres de la haute aristocratie que celles souvent frustes et sales des classes socials moins elevees. HISTOIRE ET IMAGES MEDIEVALES
