To the King’s Taste
So this book was gifted to me over Yule. I have to admit I was a bit surprised only because the woman who gifted me with the book no longer plays in the SCA but as far as I knew had no interest when she was in the SCA for medieval cooking. I didn’t even know she had the book in her library. I guess stranger things happen.
So the book is actually a thin cookbook with a bit of history and Lorna Sass own take on the recipes. There is an original recipe, a translation and then her redactions. I like the first two portions; however I always prefer to do my own redactions. If mine are truly horrible…then I might go back and go “Hmm…maybe this would be a better idea instead.”
An A for historic information included and an A for the recipes included. There aren’t many (less than 50) but the ones included are tasty and/or informative. I suggest this book for those who adore English Cookery.
