Containing a large number of unfamiliar historic recipes, this book enables readers to sample dishes once enjoyed by their remote ancestors, some of them dating back to ancient Rome. The introduction of Viking and Norman recipes is explored, together with the origins of spices from the East and the Americas in the British diet. Attention is given to the history of drink in Britain and the political conditions which dictated the importation of beverages from around the world.
