Mangiare nel Medioevo


The eating habits of today derive from the gastronomic culture of the Middle Ages, an era in which there were no supermarkets, the dishes were closely linked to seasonality and the availability of food was uncertain due to great calamities such as famines, wars and epidemics. In her essay, the author shows how the evolution of taste in Europe has been influenced by the progressive integration of Mediterranean uses and Nordic uses, with strong differences according to geographical areas but also to uses and customs. The book contains a special section dedicated to medieval recipes, taken from the texts of the ancient gastronomists.
