From the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution, the Romans to the Regency, few things have mirrored society or been affected by its upheavals as much as the food we eat and the way we prepare it. This book celebrates various aspects of our cuisine from Anglo-Saxon feasts and Tudor banquets, through the skinning of eels and the ice cream.
