I love a title that takes the reader to another time so when I originally heard of this astounding release from Penguin that brought recipes from the period of Elizabethan England and into the reign of the first of the house of Stuart to the modern reader. Some of them are tricky to fathom but can give the reader an idea or two of flavours and tastes that they perhaps may not have considered before. Add to this a guide about how the good housewife should perform that makes an interesting study in itself and the reader really does have an historical item to hand. Finally add to the mix tips and tricks for cuisine from the time period and it really is an eye opener.
