"The Medieval Kitchen is an admirable effort to elucidate how and what European peoples ate during the late Middle Ages. . . . The volume is filled with illustrations from medieval books of hours and other manuscripts; informative captions accompanying each illustration give historical context. This book is an ideal introduction to the topic for both students and adventurous cooks. Highly recommended."-- "Choice"
