Food, Drink, and Manners at Shakespeares Table
Shakespeare and his contemporaries enjoyed a varied diet by contemporary standards, enlivened by spices from Asia, vegetables from the Middle East and New World, and pickling and preserving techniques that made vivid flavors available all year. Everything was served according to the class of the dinerscommon folk ate heartily but simply, while noble banquets featured edible sculptures designed to mystify guests as to what they were eating. This lecture will cover food, drink, manners, and the daily life of a creative age.
