Description
 
Nichola Fletcher has written a captivating history of feasts through the ages that includes the dramatic failures along with the dazzling successes. From a humble meal of potatoes provided by an angel, to the extravagance of the high medieval table groaning with red deer & wild boar, to the exquisite refinement of the Japanese tea ceremony, this book covers them all. In her gustatory exploration of history’s great feasting tables, Fletcher also answers more than a few riddles such as “Why did Charlemagne use an asbestos tablecloth at his feasts?” She answers these questions & many more while inviting readers to a feasting table that extends all the way from Charlemagne’s court to her own millennium feast in Scotland. Illustrations.
