With people's fascination for food increasing, there are more cookery shows and magazines than ever, Medieval banquets are sold-out events and classic recipes and ingredients are back in fashion - which is what this book sets out to explore, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of each era from Roman times onwards. Anna recreates classic recipes from Epicurius' stuffed dormice to recipes which readers really will want to recreate. Anna explores how trade and improved transportation increased foodstuffs available and reflects on how we're returning to the old-fashioned notion of seasonal foods - just like our ancestors had to do.

Anna Selby's enthusiasm for her subject shows as she recounts some of the most fascinating - and disgusting - dishes our ancestors used to eat and how some of them, like flowers, have come back into fashion. I loved reading about the history of food - did you know that the Tudors didn't trust new-found foods like tomatoes as they thought they caused cancer but they loved chocolate and thought it helped to make women pregnant! The authentic recipes are a mix of the must-try and the truly bizarre which makes it a must-buy book for foodies and anyone interested in food and social history.
