Anne Willan looks at banquets of old

The Cookbook Library


Anne Willan. founder of La Varenne cooking school in France, has a new book out - The Cookbook Library which reviews the history of recipes and cookbooks over the last several centuries.  She has an interesting article in Zester Daily about how food became spectacle and entertainment.  Fascinating to read what was considered normal a few hundred years ago.  We wonder what earth-dwellers in 2200 will find shocking in our diets?
