Medieval Feasts and Banquets
Food, Drink, and Celebration in the Middle AgesBook - 2004
The class system during the Middle Ages dictated how people dressed, where they lived, and even what they ate. This book discusses not only the feasts and banquets of the time but also the story of how people produced the food they would eat, how they spiced food to preserve it, and how it was cooked. It even tells us which social classes ate what. Lively and profusely illustrated with illuminated manuscripts, this volume details a piece of everyday medieval life.
