Falstaff calls upon the sky to rain potatoes believing the exotic vegetable, recently bought back from the Americas, to be an aphrodisiac. Lady Capulet orders quince pies for Juliet's marriage feast with an eye to aiding fertility. This book marries the beauty of Shakespeare's lines with exquisite illustrations from John Gerard's herbal of 1597, providing an intriguing and original focus on medicine, cookery, folklore and gardening in Tudor or Jacobean England.

Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!
