This is a good little book if you don’t overload it with expectations. It’s a brief overview of medieval cuisine, with additional introductory material about tool, ovens, ingredients, and recipes. It serves as a quick overview of the subject and is a fine introduction to the subject. At 44 pages, it can be read at one setting. I enjoyed it very much. It reminds me of several of the pamphlets available through the Society for Creative Anachronism.
