The recipes are easy to follow and make for interesting conversation at dinner parties as they are a departure from the usual. For those who would like to try "something different" from the daily routines of dinnertime, this is a delicious way to study history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

All recipes were good. I used the recipes for appetizers: a liver pate which had dried fruits and broiled crab cakes with pistachio & pine nuts. These were wonderfull! Others in my group made salmon en croute & lamb chops & baked apples.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
