A Middle English Anthology
Edited by Ann S. Haskell
A reissue of the popular 1969 volume, this anthology covers a wide range of Middle English literature. Selections are numerous enough to allow professors great variation in the readings for individual courses. The supplementary references include comparative media, since literature forms only a part of the whole cultural context.
Ann Haskell has not altered the language into a common mold. She has, however, supplied punctuation, capitalization, and accent marks when necessary to aid in comprehension by the inexperienced reader.

The Last Food of England.
Published by Ebury Press, is a personal exploration of our culinary assets, what happened to them, and who looks after them. The contents include farming, gardening, hunting, shooting, fishing, foraging, buying, cooking, baking, and the ancestral memories of country people. The book is based on the author's relationship with food, where it led him, and how absorbing and enriching the experience has been. It appraises a sub-culture, originally a culture, automatically connected to time and place. The focus is on an enduring gold standard in food as distinct from any movement or renaissance. All photographs in the book and on the web site are 21st century.
Book: John Evelyn, Cook.
This is a new entry to the canon of the works of John Evelyn, the 17th century diarist, connoisseur, virtuoso and gardener whose manuscripts were recently purchased by the British Library for the sum of £2 million. This is his own personal manuscript recipe book, a collection he began shortly after his return from travels in France and Italy in 1651-2, and which was added to at intervals during the remainder of his long life (he died in 1706). The essence of the book is 300-plus recipes that John Evelyn collected from members of his family, from travelers among his acquaintance, and from friends and colleagues. These have been printed as they were written, without modernization or alteration.

Feeding A City: York
Papers given to the Leeds Symposium on Food History. Ed. Eileen White. I am pleased to offer the proceedings of this important grouping of food historians whose annual meetings at Leeds usually address a cohesive subject, often with regional associations. Two of their conferences were devoted to the matter of food and food supplies in the city of York, from earliest times until the present century. Although a set of conference papers, the method of approach ensures the book will stand alone.
Book: Building A Wood-Fired Oven for Bread and Pizza
By Tom Jaine.
The ultimate project for the do-it-yourself cook and baker: an oven in your own back yard. Pizza cooks faster and is more tender, bread crusts as it’s never crusted before. The anticipation prompted by the smoking chimney is indescribable, the results without peer. This little book tells how to build a outdoor brick oven from scratch, with working drawings; and how to restore an existing oven if your house is so lucky to possess one. There is guidance in firing and running the oven, and some recipes for good measure.
