About this book
An exploration of changes in English diet between 1500 and 1760, uncovering the fads and fashions of the past.
What did ordinary people eat and drink about five hundred years ago? How much did they talk about food? Did their eating habits change much? This book looks for and finds surprising answers to these questions. It shows how commercial, scientific and intellectual movements were closely entwined with changing attitudes and dealings about food.
