Description
 
Popular representations of the Tudors at table have caricatured them as loud, gross & lacking any manners. This is actually far from the case, as food & dining were used as social display by the upwardly mobile. For those with money, meals became extravagantly sophisticated, with a staggering number of courses & breathtaking table displays. Even those lower down the social scale enjoyed some of the benefits of increasing prosperity & the new markets which Englandís merchants exploited. Also explores Tudor ideas about healthy eating, & the health-giving properties of certain ingred. Etiquette, too, was treated with seriousness in this period, as those who wished to impress a potential patron or benefactor were keen to show off their good manners. Illus.
