As an author and medieval historian I’m constantly on the hunt for information both for my own enlightenment and for background research for the novels I write. Too many books are lavishly illustrated or wide in scope, but fall short of the detail I need. Others contain the detail but lack the clarity of narration to make it digestible. Food and Feast succeeds where many others fail. Its content is meaty but wholly accessible, which more than makes up for the use of black and white photographs used to illustrate the content.

If you want a richly illustrated overview of the subject this book is not for you. If you are looking for a particularly well-written and intelligent resource you would be hard-pressed to find another book to equal this one.

This is the first book written by Peter Hammond I have read. I will be reading more.

Good insight to the past 24 Oct. 2011

Was a pretty informative book that had much detail but didn't become unreadable along the way. If you like getting into the daily lives of people during the medieval timeframe, this book won't disappoint you.

Its easy and interesting to read very informative. I liked the additions of original texts form the time period. I found it very helpful for my research.
