Fooles and Fricassees: Food in Shakespeare's England

by

Fooles and Fricassees: Food in Shakespeare's England Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

People today assume that the diet of Shakespeare and his contemporaries was limited and rather dull. This book demonstrates, however, that 16th-century Englishmen were familiar with a wide range of foodstuffs and seasonings and had strong opinions about the flavor and quality of what they ate.

Fooles and Fricassees provides a glimpse into gardens, kitchens, butteries, and cellars of the past. It contains a fascinating array of manuscript and printed materials documenting not only what people ate but where the food came from, how it was grown, preserved, seasoned, and served, and what people believed about various foods' benefits to their health. Included in full is a transcription of Sarah Longe's "Receipt Booke" compiled around 1610.
