door Sara Paston- Williams. De auteur heeft nauwkeurig onderzoek gedaan naar eetwijzes en gewoontes in de manors en greathalls van Groot Brittanië.
Geschiedenis en traditie worden in dit boek uitvoerig toegelicht en besproken, het geheel is voorzien van recepten uit de besproken periodes.
Medieval and early Tudor food, Elizabethan food, Stuart food, Georgian food, Victorian and Edwardian food.
We may live without poetry, music and art;
We may live without conscience, and live without heart;
We may live without friends; we may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books, - what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope, - what is hope but deceiving?
He may live without love, - what is passion but pining?
But where is the man that can live without dining??
Edward Robert Bulwer, Earl of Lytton 1860
Sleeping habits and arrangements have changed comparatively little over the centuries, but cooking and eating have undergone revolution after revolution. Behind the curious ingredients and mysterious language of old cookbooks lies a completely different world, where the foods that we take for granted were often not available, food preparation, cooking and preservation were laborious tasks, and the art of dining reflected social attitudes far removed from modern practice.
Sara Paston-Williams has used the great wealth of Britain's National Trust houses and records to produce this carefully researched book. She has tackled the huge subject chronologically, from the cavernous kitchens and great halls of medieval houses like Cotehele in Cornwall to the ingenious technology of late Victorian service areas such as that at Cragside in Northumberland, which produced food for ornate dining rooms and intimate parlors. Each chapter of The Art of Dining includes historical recipes, together with their modern adaptations. The result is a feast for the eye as well as a fascinating guide to all the arts of dining.
