Food & Feast in Tudor England

Food & Feast in Tudor England by Alison Sim

An overview of many issues relating food in that era.

Discusses servants, for instance, and their rank as well as what they did at meals and how they ate. Nutrition of the diet. What was done for fancy. The enormous prices of food. Beer and wine. Tableware. Little survives because it was not valued for age; only for metal and if it had some noble associations. Entertainments. And more.
