For the first time in modern history you may review Buttes’ eight course feast, based on Elizabethan humours, edited for the modern kitchen. Original recipes, commentary on the medieval humours of each main ingredient, stories to amuse a Tudor noble, and explanations of Buttes’ dry witticisms (plus a comprehensive glossary), make this book both the resource and discussion piece for your explorations into Tudor cuisine.
For those who like to experiment with cooking and want to have some historical fun playing in the kitchen or at the campfire.
Michelle Enzinas has spent 15 years as an historical re-enactor and amateur domestic technologies archeologist, and 20 years dealing with food allergies and research into food security issues. An avid wrestler, she claims much of her cooking is an extension of her interest in self-defense.
Previously Michelle has self-published a medieval cookbook, as well as a series of cooking columns in historical re-enactment journals and newsletters. She has a bachelor of science in psychology from Acadia University.
Michelle lives in Ottawa, Ontario, where her experimental cooking is enjoyed by her husband, and eyed suspiciously by her daughter.
