3. Description this book Feasts were a common way of drawing families and communities together in the Middle Ages. This book takes readers inside a medieval kitchen highlighting utensils used in food preparation, the servants who worked there, and how food was prepared.

Food in the Middle Ages was expensive and hard to preserve. Most Christian Churches deemed that fasting and feasting should alternate. Fridays were often fast days. Fasting also occurred on Lent and Advent. Its preparation and preservation changed little over the time period (5th-16th centuries). The early modern time period which proceeded was essential to European history. This is when European diet and cooking began to change and shape what would make up the foundations for modern day European cookery. However, it is still important to study food in the Middle Ages as it is so different from what we know today.

I adore the Middle Ages and have a substantial library on the topic. This book here is definitely INTENDED FOR CHILDREN which, of course, is quite fine. It's just good to be aware of that up front. It's only 32 pages and each page is perhaps half big text, half image. So this is ideal for an 11-yr-old who is writing a report on food during the Middle Ages. It's less useful for a 30-yr-old bride-to-be hoping to plan out a medieval themed banquet for her wedding.

The information here is good although necessarily sparse, given the few pages and the intended reading audience. In the preserving food area, the text explains that medieval folk would salt meat and fish so it could last three months. But it doesn't give youthful readers a reminder that, back then, food would otherwise spoil quickly, in a world without fridges or freezers. There's no surrounding discussion of "otherwise the meat would go bad in a day".

I appreciate that the book doesn't assume readers only want to hear about British customs. There are a few pages which cover traditions in Africa, South America, and other locations during this time period.

I like how the book dispels some modern notions that medieval people only ate gruel and rocks (ok, I jest, but some modern readers aren't far off). It discusses how, because of the intricate trade routes in place, people in this time period had access to oranges, apricots, sugar, pomegranates, and other items. Sure, they were special treats rather than daily fare, but they were known and understood by people.

On the down side, the section on herbs and spices in medicine make it sound like simpleton medieval people put myrrh on their cuts and that was all they knew about medicine. Nothing could be further from the truth! They could do successful brain surgery in those days! Sure, their medicine wasn't up to modern standards, but it wasn't at a caveman-level either. They had quite talented doctors. Heck, they were doing cataract surgery. So I found the medical section a bit misleading.

Still, all in all, the book does a reasonably good job of giving young readers a grounding in what it was like to live in medieval times. Hopefully this is enough to whet their appetite to then pick up some of the more in depth books to truly learn what this fascinating time period was all about.

This turned out to be a book for children. Nothing at all what I expected, and extremely over priced for what it is. Terribly disappointed. Will not buy from this vendor again.

The series is wonderful for the intended reader (ages 9 - 12) and taken as a whole, gives a very comprehensive look at life in the middle ages. As a stand-alone book, however, it is very narrow in it's scope. It deals exclusively with growing, acquiring, serving and beliefs about food during that time. While it has many lists of the kinds of food found in the area, along with who eats them and when, it does not have any descriptions of prepared dishes, and has only one recipe, which is basically melted cheese on crackers. For a child writing a report on food in the middle ages, this is a perfect book. For a child or adult wishing to host a recreation of a middle ages feast, this book is nearly useless. For a child who has just discovered a love of the middle ages, it is going to be the start of an expensive collection.

Good, back in print, good info for a starting place for any recipe researcher. Trying the recipes will give you a start on the types of spicing and cooking of that time period.

I used this series of books for a quick and easy reference guide in case there was a little detail I couldn't remember or wasn't sure about. These do the trick!

This is a book for children. It is OK.
I wanted something better.
I will pass it on to a child that I know.
These books in The Medieval World series (there are 20), published by Crabtree Publishing Company, serve myriad purposes. For the intended reading age, 9-12, they present medieval life--very confusing to our contemporary conventions--in a perfectly understandable fashion. For that age range, I could not recommend these books higher. If I'd had such materials when I was younger, I might have ended up as a medieval scholar.

Yet they also serve a purpose that the publisher may not have intended, and that is for the casual researcher of medieval life.

There are accessible texts for the casual researcher, this is true, but none that I've seen contain simple explanations and diagrams. For example, this book is full of wonderful illustrations that depict: a timeline that begins with the feudal system and importing rice to Spain from the Middle East in 700 ACE to Christopher Columbus and the introduction of new food around 1493 ACE; what different food shops looked like; taverns and inns; and a two-page diagram (with numbers!) of a noble's feast; and many, many more.

Every page in this book (there are 32 pages in every book in the series), is presented in full color, the pages colored to resemble parchment, and the illustrations done to wonderfully evoke the period.

The "chapters" included are:

The Middle Ages
Ideas About Food
Farming
Peasant's Food
Markets and Fairs
The Spice Trade
Eating in Towns
Food Shops
Cooking in the Castle
A Noble's Table
A Noble's Feast
Hunting, Hawking, and Fishing
Feasts and Fasts
Food in Other Cultures
Glossary and Index (wonderful to have!)

If you're a writer, and you're looking for simple information on what medieval life looked like, this series of books can't be beat. To buy the entire series may be prohibitive, but if you have an idea of exactly what you want, this is a great starting point.
