Description: Popular representations of the Tudors have caricatured dinners of the period as loud, gross and lacking any polite graces. This is far from the case, as Alison Sim shows in this lavishly illustrated and highly readable account of Tudor eating habits. Tudor society went through vast changes, many of which were reflected in the food which people ate and in the way food and dining were used for social display by the upwardly mobile. For those with money, meals became extravagantly sophisticated, with a staggering number of courses and breathtaking table displays. Even those of the benefits of increasing prosperity and the new markets which England's merchants exploited, bringing new foodstuffs into the country and new ideas about eating. This is the first general overview of Tudor dining, and makes the case for regarding Tudor food and feast as different from its medieval counterpart. All those interested in Tudor times and in the way food and eating have changed over the centuries will enjoy this book.
