Bon Appetit!  Join Kate and Thomas as they tuck into a big helping of food history.  Kate discusses the food and drink of seventeenth century Scotland with Lindsay Middleton, food historian and National Trust intern.  Kate and Thomas discuss the pubs of Edinburgh and cooking historic recipes.

Also - hear about Matilda of Scotland, daughter of King Malcolm III and St Margaret, wife and consort of King Henry I of England, patroness of literature and the arts and formidable medieval queen.

Book recommendations this week - M. F. K. Fisher, 'How to Cook a Wolf' (a series of essays and thoughts about wartime recipes) and Giles MacDonough, 'After the Reich' (a brutal history of the Allied occupation of Germany after WW2).
