Product Details


Shakespeare’s Kitchen treats four-hundred-year-old recipes with a freshness that will keep this cookbook selling for years and years to come. As enlightening as they are appetizing, Segan’s recipes bring the exuberance of the Elizabethan era into the modern American kitchen. You’ll want to try them all.”
Moira Hodgson, cookbook author and restaurant critic, The New York Observer 
“Francine Segan has employed the same intelligence and passion directors of plays and films use in making the Bard relevant to us and to our times. The fare she found and resuscitated is far more sophisticated than those cinematic visions of nobles gnawing on haunches of various animals had led us to believe. It is clear that all manner of appetites were stimulated at table in Shakespeare’s time, and, through Segan’s book, will be again.”
William Rice, food and wine columnist, Chicago Tribune

“I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Francine’s table many times and have always walked away singing. I loved reading Shakespeare’s Kitchen. Maybe now I can learn to cook! A hit, a very palpable hit.”
Betty Buckley, Tony Award–winning actress and singer

“Francine Segan reawakens our love of the Renaissance feast. William Shakespeare’s words find their feasting fellow in this joyous cookbook in which pleasures of the flesh and pleasures of the spirit cohabitate.”
Tina Packer, artistic director, Shakespeare & Company, Lenox, Massachusetts

“Through Segan’s connection to Shakespeare’s delicious words and times she entices us with culinary delights that are sure to please any palate.”
David A. Dreyfoos, producing director, Oregon Shakespeare Festival
