Wellcome Mead presents 105 historical mead recipes and their variants (29 additional recipes). Each of the recipes has been drawn from 17th and early 18th century English household receipt books held by the Wellcome Library in London. Although the recipes are drawn from a focused time and geography, they showcase the breadth and complexity of historical mead recipes.
The book is available from Amazon.
