Cooking in Late Medieval England

Cooking really hasn't changed all that much over the centuries. A good shape, once it is figured out, is used culture to culture, for hundreds of years. It is particularly true with the cookpot. Styles and decorations may come and go, but for the most part, the roundness and basic shape really is stand from early BC until even now.
