Greetings and salutations!
Have you ever wanted to know more about the lighter side of Shakespeare without having to dive into a pile of research materials...perhaps be entertained by light reading and still learn interesting information? If so, here is a book for you. Feasting in Shakespeare's Plays will guide you on a journey through Shakespeare's world from a perspective that anyone can easily relate to: culinary delights!

Foodstuffs were mentioned often in Shakespeare’s plays. But how often have we stopped to take notice of the tastes and smells that shape our imagination as we read or watch his stories unfold? Author Rie Sato skillfully interprets Shakespeare's plays from this angle, illustrating examples of how the master of language used food as double and triple entendres.

"I tried to understand what Shakespeare intended to communicate to his audience by using food as a conduit," says Sato. "Understanding Shakespearean food, I believe, can help us get closer to his world."

To better grasp Shakespeare's use of metaphors and symbolism, the author also shares her research on the cultural, social and historical environments that framed the age in which Shakespeare's plays were set.

The author provides references to English period cookbooks and recipe collections, and includes her personal recipes that were painstakingly adapted to today’s modern kitchen. This is not a cookbook, but rather a guide for the Shakespeare enthusiast to "feast" on his plays (author's pun intended) by enjoying the pleasures of traditional fare and its preparation methods.
