This book presents a new and astonishing way to study the medieval times: through the recipes of the different dishes that were enjoyed centuries ago by El Cid and his warriors. 73 recipes of the Spanish medieval culinary art, for the first time detailed in ingredients and times of cooking, make this book a very special and unusual pleasure.
The importance of food during the medieval centuries appears to us in these pages, which was not a pleasure to enjoy, but an obsession in a society where famine was a constant foe threatening everyone. In war, victory or defeat could be determined by food. Such an important aspect of life that kings and lords used it as a propaganda method to get people’s support.
