The Art of Dining

A History of Cooking & Eating

Sara Paston-Williams

From the cavernous kitchens of medieval manors to the relatively sophisticated technology of Victorian houses, this volume draws on the records of National Trust properties to show how cooking and dining habits evolved through the centuries. The book is illustrated with reproductions of paintings from each period and photographs of surviving kitchens, and each chapter includes practical modern adaptations of historical recipes.
