Date: 1975

This is the original Gouache painting by Patrick Nicolle.

Roasting birds in a 16th Century Kitchen. Part of the series 'The British at Table' which was marvellously illustrated by Pat Nicolle during its run in 1975. The detail is really something to admire, as the basket of vegetables, the excitable cat and the hung hare attest.

The drinking vessel was known as a Black Jack and was common in the period. The wooden dish was known as a Trencher from which we get the phrase "a good trencherman" meaning someone with a good appetite. Note the small hollow which was used for salt.

Original artwork for illustration on p23 of Look and Learn issue no 708 (9 August 1975).
