‘A Game of Thrones grabs hold and won’t let go. It’s brilliant.’
‘Colossal, staggering… Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world… one of the greats of fantasy literature.’
‘Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads… Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias.’

It's a hardback with glossy pages and brilliant photographs. The major feature of this book is that they are not hit and miss recipes twisted round in an attempt to resemble the literature - the authors did an amazing job of sourcing authentic recipes. In fact, the book is presented with two versions of each dish - the original and the modern. The original dishes are usually labelled as ancient Roman or mediaeval Elizabethan and are surprisingly delicious, inviting and not that difficult to get ingredients for. The modern versions can be less hassle and are sufficiently different to the originals to give you choice.
The sign of a good cookbook is if it changes the way you eat. I can safely say that ancient Rome and mediaeval food are a part of my repertoire and that's not going to change. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to cook, whether you're looking for inventive meals or if you want to be able to cook the mainstays, it really is that varied. Oh and if you just salivated over the food in the books and wanted to see what they really look like, the book's for you, too.
