This is a really fascinating book for anyone with a passing interest in either history or food! Yes, you foodies out there will find it to be a really good read.

The different chapters of the book deal with different aspects of the everyday life. And it is well written too - not just a dry historical text, but a rich detailing of what was available to eat and how it looked. Most people have seen grand feasts on TV or movies, such as whole roasted peacocks with their feathers put back, and yes, you can read of such extravaganzas right here!

It is a really interesting book - guaranteed to generate conversation if you leave it out the next time you have a dinner party. It is good fun too, and always interesting!
