Description of the Product

NOTE: IN FINNISH ONLY!

What were people eating in the middle ages? How was food sourced and prepared? This beautifully illustrated book takes you on a culinary voyage throughout the medieval period. You will become familiar with traditions, practices and methods not only in medieval Finland but Europe in general: how food was sources, its use as a marker of socio-economic status, and use in taxation, not forgetting the all-important business of storage and preservation.

This book will guide you in preparing medieval treats in your own modern kitchen. The recipes feature such popular dishes as sourdough bread and sour herring, as well as drinks such as herbal mead and juniper beer. The book also tells about the use of natural herbs as sustenance and medication, and how the food and the herbs affected the health and well-being of medieval people.

Authors: Satu Hovi and Katri Niemi. Published by Art House. Hard cover, 448 pages.
