SYNOPSIS: This book serves several purposes for the writer as well as the reader.  It will give you a feeling for the flavors, spices and dishes over the centuries, and leave you wondering whether your attraction to saffron or mushrooms is acquired or inherited.  It will also give you another sense to experiment with in your writing--taste.  By making the actual recipes in this book, you can experience what your characters would have many years ago.  Relive a medieval royal banquet or a Victorian nursery breakfast.  Each section has an overview of food trends for the century, as well as recipes for all types of fare.  A fun and instructional reference!
