Revive your inner period cook and master the art of gode cookery with
thirty-five recipes celebrating festivals throughout the year!
Fancy a leap back in time to the kitchens in the Middle Ages, where cauldrons
bubbled over hearths, whole oxen were roasted over spits, and common cooking
ingredients included verjuice, barley, peafowl, frumenty, and elder flowers?
You, too, can learn the art of gode cookery —or, at least, come close to it.
With gorgeous and whimsical hand-drawn illustrations from beginning to end, A
Thyme and Place is both a cookbook and a history for foodies and history
buffs alike. Cohen and Graves revive old original medieval recipes and
reimagine and modify them to suit modern palates and tastes. Each recipe is
tied directly to a specific calendar holiday and feast so you can learn to
• Summer harvest wine with elder flower, apples, and pears for St. John’s Day
• Right-as-rain apple cake for St. Swithin’s Day (July 15th)
• Wee Matilda’s big pig fried pork balls with sage for Pig Face Day (September
• Roasted goose with fig glaze and bannock stuffing for Michaelmas (September
• Peasant duck ravioli and last of the harvest chutney for Martinmas (November
• And many more!
Accompanied by juicy fun facts and tidbits, these recipes will revive your
inner period cook and allow you to impress your guests with obscure medieval
knowledge. Keep the old culinary traditions of the Middle Ages alive, whip up
some bellytimber , and fill the dinner table with food and friends at your
next house banquet.
