This is an important study of the household affairs - especially as they relate to the provisioning and consumption of food and drink - of the Willoughby family of Wollaton Hall in Nottingham and Middleton Hall in Warwickshire. Made wealthy by inheritance, coal mining and iron smelting, they built a Tudor wonder-house at Wollaton, designed by the architect Robert Smythson. The survival of their archive allows close analysis of their domestic arrangements. For too long, food history has This is an important study of the household affairs - especially as they relate to the provisioning and consumption of food and drink - of the Willoughby family of Wollaton Hall in Nottingham and Middleton Hall in Warwickshire. Made wealthy by inheritance, coal mining and iron smelting, they built a Tudor wonder-house at Wollaton, designed by the architect Robert Smythson. The survival of their archive allows close analysis of their domestic arrangements. For too long, food history has consisted of rummages among old cookbooks and juicy extracts from published diaries, with little serious work done on private archives and financial records. In consequence, we have much anecdote and little hard evidence. This book aims to redress the balance. Drawing upon the household accounts, Mark Dawson studies the patterns of food purchasing and supply, whether from markets and merchants or from the family's own estates. He models the dietary intake both of the family and its servants, reconstructs the kitchen administration and organization, and links the Willoughbys' experience to that of England as a whole, especially in relation to dietary and culinary change. There was a great deal going on in the Tudor kitchen: styles of cookery were altering, new foodstuffs were being added to the discoveries overseas. A series of chapters treats the main categories of foods: grains, meats, fish, fruit and vegetables. There is discussion of drinks, whether wine or beer (particularly the shift from ale to beer as the standard beverage). There is an account of the strategies of purchase, preservation and storage of foods, of the kitchen equipment, and of the kitchen staffing and operation. And there is an account of the family of Willoughby itself, whose great house at Wollaton survives as the museum of the City of Nottingham. Plenti and Grase will appeal to historians and general readers interested in Tudor England, to culinary historians interested in Books, Cooking & Cookbooks~~History, Plenti-and-Grase~~Mark-Dawson, 999999999, Plenti and Grase: Food and Drink in a Sixteenth-Century Household, Mark Dawson, 1903018560, Marion Boyars Publishers Ltd, , , , , Marion Boyars Publishers Ltd
