<<< I'd like to put it in my class bibliography as a good book for beginners
to read, but am also open to other suggestions about general books that
are not cookbooks that consider the renaissance era specifically.>>>

I do have this file in the FOOD-BOOKS section of the Florilegium, which discusses many books about foods and sometimes gives more extensive reviews of them.
books-food-msg (213K) 5/16/10 Books about food. Not cookbooks.

The cookbook equivalents cover cookbookX-msg, where x is 1 through 6.

As time permits I am trying to gather the multiple comments about individual cookbooks into their own files, such as this recent one:
M-Wash-Cookbk-art (25K) 5/31/10 Reviews and comments on Martha Washington's Book of Cookery.

There are also several annotated bibliographies in that section that probably include cookbooks as well as books about food. This is probably the most-extensive, so you might start with this one.
cookbooks-bib (44K) 2/15/04 Cookbook bib. by Mistress Jaelle of Armida.
