At the mention of "Tudor Food" the image many people might first bring to mind is of Henry VIII tucking into a large leg of roast fowl. There were of course many great feasts, but these did not happen every day. What, then, were the regular eating habits of the Tudors? Christine Huddleston here outlines what the Tudors ate, where they obtained it, how they preserved it, cooked and ate it, and what they drank with it. Also offering a few easy recipes for the reader to attempt, this colorful and well-illustrated book brings to life the eating experiences of our Tudor forebears.
