The Shakespeare Cookbook

Front Cover
British Museum Press, 2012 - Cooking - 144 pages
Shakespeare's working life, from about 1590 to 1615, was not only a period of rich activity on the London stage, but also one of prolific writing and publishing about food. Shakespeare himself used food in many of his plays: from memorable banquet scenes, to the use of food and feasting as metaphor. This fascinating book explores the plays alongside contemporary recipes to offer modern-day cooks a unique insight into daily life and gastronomy in Shakespeare's London.
