A Historical Cookbook from a New York Times Bestselling Author!
17th century recipes with modern versions and gluten-free options
If you enjoy cooking, historical recipes, or historical romance, you’ll enjoy this cookbook from bestselling romance author Lauren Royal!
Lauren’s Chase Family Series characters love to eat! And Lauren does her research, so of course they eat period-appropriate foods. Lauren has collected dozens of antique cookbooks from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and over many years of trial and error, she’s learned how to make the recipes using modern methods.
In this cookbook, Lauren shares her very favorite historical recipes with you, two from each of her Chase Family Series: The Jewels and Chase Family Series: The Flowers novels, along with excerpts from the scenes where her characters enjoy each dish. All of the recipes are easy to make, even for beginner cooks.
For each recipe, Lauren has included the original text and her modern adaptation, with current measurements and cooking methods. And every recipe includes gluten-free alternatives!

About the Author
I decided to become a writer in the third grade (or, as my Canadian friends call it, grade three), after winning a "Why My Mother is the Greatest" essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper. Seeing my words in print was a thrill! But everyone told me it's too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book. A mistake? Maybe...but my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, "Write what you know." And I learned a good lesson: Don't let other people tell you what you can or can't do!
I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the 17th and 19th centuries (Restoration and Regency periods). I've been oh-so-lucky to see my books hit bestseller lists all over the world, including the New York Times and USA Today lists, and win awards including the Golden Quill and Booklist's Top 10 Romance of the Year, making this second career a real dream come true. I live in Southern California with my husband, our three young adult children, and one constantly shedding cat, and I still think my mother is the greatest!
