5.0 out of 5 stars recommeded reading!, 21 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Pleyn Delit: Medieval Cookery for Modern Cooks (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleyn Delit has been a hit with adults and teenagers., 7 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Pleyn Delit: Medieval Cookery for Modern Cooks (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.

This review is from: Pleyn Delit: Medieval Cookery for Modern Cooks (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: Pleyn Delit: Medieval Cookery for Modern Cooks (Paperback)
The recipes are easy to follow. tried and tested by the authors. Ingredients like for example, almond milk that needs to bee prepared and reoccure often are explained separatly it is not taken for granted that the reader already knows. Possible substitutes for hard to find ingredients are given in many cases.A really good book to start with.
