about

In 1599 Henry Buttes wrote a slightly comical cookbook for the Bacon family, in order to raise funds for the construction of a church.

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.

Those who at first look at the Big Buttes Book primarily as a cookbook, will find themselves being drawn into Henry's discussion of the logical foundations of cooking, and will learn much about how individual dishes were combined into a proper Elizabethan meal.
