Chapter Summary

The topic of food and its appreciation was one of the many pleasures of conversation with Richard Fletcher, to whose memory this chapter is dedicated. Richard would have immediately seen both the point and the fun in the inquisition records of medieval Languedoc. Food?and drink?occur frequently, and there has been no systematic investigation. What is presented in the first part of the chapter are some examples of the evidence and the problems and opportunities which it throws up: a taster of what would be used in and illuminated by a fuller study of the topic. The chapter then presents few examples of the evidence, drawn randomly from one Toulouse manuscript of depositions taken down in 1245?46.
