Medieval Cook

Active selection in cart:
Medieval Cook. In medieval times bread was the staple diet of the ordinary folk. These drawings show the various stages in its preparation from ploughing, harrowing (notice the boys scaring away the birds) and gathering the grain, to the milling and baking. A cook was not always a sort of greasy menial. The handsome figure on the right was cook to two French kings, Charles V and Charles VI. Notice the three cooking pots emblazoned on his shield. Original artwork for illustration on p23 of Look and Learn issue no 707 (2 August 1975).
