It can be hard to stick to a diet in modern times when eating out. It was much the same for a medieval knight, so when he was dining in his own household his personal physician would work with his cook to keep their master in peak condition. In this episode, Jason and food historian Chris Carr discuss the medieval understanding of nutrition and how it affected the knight’s diet, as well as the influence of spices and how they defined one’s social standing. • Executive Producer: Jason Kingsley OBE • Executive Producer: Chris Kingsley • Senior Producer: Brian Jenkins • Producer: Edward Linley • Director: Dominic Read • Presenter: Jason Kingsley OBE • Subject Matter Expert: Chris Carr • Camera: Jo Taylor • Camera: Dominic Read • Editing: Lindsey Studholme • Stills Photographer: Kasumi • Production Manager: Kevin Case • Audio: Frank Newman • Sound Design: Liam Flannigan • Music licensed from PremiumBeat • Additional Camera: Darren Cook • Additional Camera: Neil Phillips • Additional Sound: Elizabeth Carlyon Special Thanks: • Chris Payton • Ed Savage Facebook: www.facebook.com/modernhistorytv/ Twitter: @ModernHistoryTV Many thanks to Chris Carr – check out www.brigaandfriends.co.uk
