"This engrossing work covers a great deal of culinary ground, and will interest many readers. . . . This is a truly fascinating look at how people ate four hundred years ago."--Sixteenth Century Journal
"A pleasure to read and a solid contribution to gastronomic history."--Historian
"The Banquet is the first book to describe developments in the realm of courtly feasting on an international scale. Few specialists in this field have so broad a knowledge of the literature in so many languages, and few have read so widely and thoughtfully. Intelligently written and original, this book is a pleasure to read."--Barbara K. Wheaton, author of Savoring the Past
