Elizabethan Food

Elizabethan.org has several pages up on what “we” eat.  I’m going to assume that “we” means “people of Elizabethan society” given the context. The information is quite extensive, including information on how things were measured, when and what meals were eaten, and so on. Over at a site called Seat of Mars you can actually buy Elizabethan food for yourself.  I may have to try that.  “Mixed sweet spiced nuts” sounds good.

  1. That is MAJORLY cool.

    I’ve bought one or two replica cookbooks over the years, including one with a recipe for buttered beere for the Harry Potter fen.

    I’ve also got a more modern book called Shakespeare’s Kitchen with recipes adapted to modern measurements. Ages ago, I blogged a talk the author gave @ Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox.

    Speaking of Shakespeare & food, if you have the chance, Wellesley College is performing Titus and it’s a lot of fun.
