£9.99

Available in Stock

Behind the strange ingredients and instructions in old cookbooks lies another world, where foods we take for granted were unknown, preparation was laborious, and dining reflected social attitudes far removed from those of today. This volume draws on the records of National Trust houses to show how dining habits evolved from the cavernous kitchens of medieval manors to the technology of Victorian houses. Lavishly illustrated with period images, each chapter includes historical recipes with modern adaptations.
