Food, Eating, & Identity in Early Medieval England.
Woodbridge, Suffolk: Boydell. 2014. Paperback 2017.
Food in the Middle Ages usually means feasting, speeches, and special occasions, even though most evidence of food culture consists of fragments of ordinary things like knives, cooking pots, and grinding stones, objects rarely mentioned by medieval writers. This book puts daily life and simple things at the center of the food world.
