Food and Feast in Medieval England

by P. W. Hammond

Alan Sutton Publishing Ltd., 1993

Contains many black-and-white illustrations using reproductions of period artwork.  Hammond discusses agriculture, animal husbandry, and availability of food.  He then discusses the eating habits of those in the country, those in towns, and the gentry as well as nutrition, food adulteration, and table manners.  Feasts have their own chapter.  This is a beautiful and practical book, at least for someone with my interests.
