You can now taste what King Richard II used to eat, as a 14th-century recipe book compiled by his chefs is set to go online. This cookbook will provide an unbeatable insight into the lifestyle during the Middle Ages.

Entitled 'Forme of Cury,' the book was written in 1390 in Middle English and includes blank mang and mortrews.

The cookbook is a part of a project by the University of Manchester who are photographing and placing online 40 books from the Middle Ages.
