This is easily a must-have for anyone who looks to prepare a feast in proper medieval style. The writing is well done, the recipes are succulent, and accessible too! The original text side-by-side with the modern text sets you up to make similar translations for yourself.

Format: Paperback
Pleyn Delit offers a great variety of simple to medium hard recipes that can be adapted to your current menu or replace it if the ambition is there. The recipes are tasty and well-explained. Some ingredients are hard to find but for the most part replacement items are named. With this book, I've concocted complete medieval meals as well as odds and ends for special occasions while increasing the depth of my family's usual menus.

I got the book from the high school library two years ago, I'm now out of school, but I wrote a few down and have tried a few of them, they are delicious!!!

This book is so well known by those of us who have any intereast in Medieval Cookery. It is suitable for both beginner and experianced alike. For those who are not familular with the work it gives some sugestions for a medieval meal. The recipies are divided into sections and have the medieval recipie (thank fully in a modern typeface making them easily readable) followed in most cases with alternatives and a modern (redaction) translation with quantaties (not often found in the original form. I would recomend this book for those who have just a mild intereast or curiosity to the experieanced alike. So much so that even with my own experiance this is my third copy having lent the first and not got it back and the second being destroyed by flooding.
