Description
As well as being the most celebrated diarist of all time, Samuel Pepys was also a hearty drinker, eater, and connoisseur of epicurean delights, who indulged in every pleasure 17th-century London had to offer. Whether he is feasting on barrels of oysters, braces of carps, larks' tongues, and copious amounts of wine; merrymaking in taverns until the early hours; attending formal dinners with lords and ladies; or entertaining guests at home with his young wife, these irresistible selections from Pepys' diaries provide a frank, high-spirited and vivid picture of the joys of overindulgence (and the side effects afterwards). This book is part of Penguin's Great Food seriesócompact little tomes that celebrate the heady intersection of great writing and great eating in the past four centuries.

"Vigorous, precise, enchanting ... the most ordinary and the most extraordinary writer you will ever meet."óClaire Tomalin
