  The Medieval Cookbook, by Maggie Black


  Dining with William Shakespeare, Magge Lorin

Expensive, and not bad.

  Fabulous Feasts, by Madeleine Pelner Cosman

Pathetic. Her recipes are rarely close to the originals, and she doesn't
document how or what changed.  Or where the original came from.  AVOID.

I would HEAVILY recommend the new second edition of Pleyn Delite.  Hieatt
and Butler and someone else...  It's just out, beautifully researched, and
cheap in softcover.
