Big Sale Cooking and Dining in Medieval England


The history of medieval food and cookery has received a fair amount of attention from the point of view of recipes (of which many survive) and of the general context of feasts and feasting. It has never, as yet, been studied with an eye to the real mechanics of food production and service: the equipment used, the household organisation, the architectural arrangements for kitchens, store-rooms, pantries, larders, cellars, and domestic administration. This new work by Peter Brears, perhaps Britain's foremost expert on the historical kitchen, looks at these important elements of cooking and dining. He also subjects the many surviving doents relating to food service - household ordinances, regulations and commentaries - to critical study in an attempt to reconstruct the precise rituals and customs of dinner.

An underlying intention is to rehabilitate the medieval Englishman as someone with an appreciation of food and cookery, decent manners, and a delicate sense of propriety and seemliness. To dispel the myth, that is, of medieval feasting as an orgy of gluttony and bad manners, usually provided with meat that has gone slightly off, masked by liberal additions of heady es.

A series of chapters looks at the cooking departments in large households: the counting house, dairy, brewhouse, pastry, boiling house and kitchen. These illustrated by architectural perspectives of surviving examples in castles and manor houses throughout the land. Then there chapters dealing with the various sorts of kitchen equipment: fires, fuel, pots and pans. Sections then devoted to recipes and types of food cooked. The recipes those which have been used and tested by Brears in hundreds of demonstrations to the public and cooking for museum displays. Finally there chapters on the service of dinner (the service departments including the ery, pantry and ewery) and the rituals that grew up around these. Here, Brears has drawn a wonderful strip cartoon of the serving of a great feast (the washing of hands, the delivery of napery, the tasting for poison, etc.) which will be of permanent utility to historical re-enactors who wish to get their details right.

Big Sale Gift of Graces


Jane, shortly after moving into her sister Grace's home, is now a frightened, pregnant teen who's being faced with a life-altering decision. Should she terminate the pregnancy despite the fact she never thought it should be an option for anyone? Now that the tables were turned, it looked to be her only way out. Keeping her child wouldn't be the best choice. Having no cer or formal education, how would she manage to raise a child on her own? Option number three seemed horribly painful. She couldn't imagine giving her child to total strangers. She was grateful to have her sister Grace walk the journey with her. Seven years later, Jane is married with a little boy and a baby on the way, and she thinks her life is nearly perfect. Then she receives a devastating phone call—her sister Grace is stricken with a deadly virus. Jane faces yet another harrowing page in her life. At the end of her child-bearing years, Jane and her husband blessed with another pregnancy. But again she is confronted with the same choices of her youth, as the child she is carrying will be born with a disability.

Big Sale neo Rauch


A retrospective of Rauch's delirious painting

Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by Neo Rauch.

Rife with anachronisms, peopled with seemingly random figures busy doing rather surreal things, and painted in a wide range of muted hues, Neo Rauch's paintings look like Soviet-era illustrations that have shifted into a Lynchian parallel dimension. Set in a variety of industrial locations such as power plants, factories, military buildings, 1950s apartment blocks, and construction sites, the paintings evoke societal ideals somehow gone wrong; the hard-working subjects never seem to be doing anything practical or useful and the disjointed narratives mind-boggling in their dramatic incoherence. Looking at a Neo Rauch painting, one has the intense urge to psychoyze it as if it were one's own bewildering dream.
Born and raised behind the Iron Curtain in Leipzig, Germany, Neo Rauch became fascinated with the late-1970s "Neue Wilde" anti-establishment movement in painting and used it as a departure point for his own work, which soon evolved into his unmistakably unique style. His first solo shows came at about the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall 1989; though it wasn't until 2000 that he began to show outside Germany, international success came quickly and many major solo exhibitions followed. Now that Rauch's work is highly sought after and commands great sums, it is only natural that it should be the subject of a serious and large-scale volume. This mive tome features Rauch's best work so far, with approximately 200 large-scale reproductions, ytical texts by Harald Kunde, a personal portrait by Wolfgang Büscher, and a look at the painter from an international perspective by Gary Tinterow.
