5.0 out of 5 stars A combination cookbook and industrial history, 28 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: All the King's Cooks: The Tudor Kitchens of King Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace (Hardcover)
Peter Brears intersperses a thorough examination of Henry VIII's kitchens at Hampton Court with recipes drawn from period sources.
The palace kitchens at Hampton Court were a large-scale industrial enterprise that fed 600-1200 people every day - everyone from the lowliest servant to the King himself. The author does a grand job of describing how the system procured, stored, and prepared immense amounts of raw materials each day.
Interspersed with the description are recipes drawn from contemporary sources that are similiar to what might have been served at the palace. The author also covers Tudor table manners, etiquette, and the ceremony involved in feeding the monarch.
