I didn't want this book to end. I love the whole series!

I wish it had a couple real pictures in there, like pictures of actual medieval kitchens and utensils.

"Is this the latest edition of some gross-out cooking show? Nope, it's a 1,000-year old recipe from the Middle Ages." [p. 14]

This was amazing. Fantastic illustrations.

Fun book about food in the middle ages. I finally learned the real story behind "Sing a Song of Six-Pence." When I was a little gal, I was told that live birds would be baked into pies - what everyone failed to mention to my impressionable little self, was that they didn't actually eat the birds. It was more of a practical joke. I can't tell you how many moments of horror I endured thinking of those medieval kings trying to eat fluttering birds.
