Have you ever wondered what the recipe would be for "four and twenty blackbirds baked into a pie?" Can you believe that people once needed instructions on how to prepare "toast and cheese"? And what exactly does the drink named "the Bosom Caresser" consist of? Drawing on more than 150 sources spanning the 14th through the 19th centuries, this good-humored book is a treasury of food lore, commentary, and custom, supplying more than 300 recipes, given in their original format. The text is complemented by hundreds of vintage illustrations of food, kitchenware, and historical figures, along with loads of quotations and advice.
