Came across this new title today.

The Shakespeare Cookbook  by Andrew Dalby and Maureen Dalby. The British Museum, 2012.
"A beautifully illustrated cookbook revealing what people were really eating in Shakespeare's time, featuring fifty original menus and recipes from 16th‐ and 17th‐century cookbooks, alongside food‐related quotes from Shakespeare's canon. Including fully‐tested modern day adaptations of all fifty recipes, this is an excellent resource for all those interested in history, cookery, literature and a wider approach to the world of Shakespeare."

It goes along with the exhibit Shakespeare Staging the World. (For which there is also a very nice catalogue.)
