Medieval Tastes: Food, Cooking, and the Table - Massimo Montanari


I'll admit (again) that I initially selected Medieval Tastes thinking it would be a recipe book. I know. I really have to work on these impulse clicks. Anyways, having recently relocated to England and slowly making my way through museum after museum, I have become somewhat obsessed with all things medieval. When I opened the book, my disappointment at it not containing page after page of recipes was quickly squashed. What it did contain was an absolute treasure trove of information about all things culinary during this fascinating time period.

Well researched and incredibly thorough, Montanari's Medieval Tastes is essential to anyone with an interest in gastronomy, the origins of most modern food, and all things medieval.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from Net Galley and the publisher Columbia University Press.
