This collection of 90 unusual recipes from historical cookery books includes some extraordinary dishes, such as Artificial Asses' Milk Made with Bruised Snails (1747) and Porpoise with Wheat Porridge (1450). Recipes reveal a lot about their time, and here a perceptive commentary discusses their social and economic context. A foreword by Heston Blumenthal sheds light on the way our cuisine is constantly evolving in response to trends and new ingredients.
