Summary
The lord, lady, and all the servants of Camdenton Manor prepare a great, extravagant feast for the king and his traveling court, all the many details of which are captured in richly colored illustrations
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

The King is coming to visit! For the lord and lady of Camdenton Manor, the announcement from the palace is an awesome challenge. The King travels with his Queen and court: rooms must be readied, tents set up, fields fenced for the royal horses-and above all, there is the great feast to concoct.

The preparations take weeks. There is hunting and hawking, milling and baking, brewing and churning .... Then, in the great vaulted kitchen, the cooking begins in earnest! One after another the sumptuous dishes emerge -- succulent roasts, birds baked in Pies, and fantastic sculptures of pastry and marzipan. And to the music of minstrels, while jugglers juggle and jesters jest, the guests in the Great Hall eat their way through it all. The lord gives his King a feast to remember!

With A Medieval Feast Aliki creates a joyful extravaganza to bring the character and color of a distant world tantalizingly close.
