Does anyone know precisely when the practice of rice being thrown at
weddings began?  Perhaps Perdita put rice on the list to make rice
pudding with, as has been suggested, but does the Clown raise the issue
of a possible matrimonial, thus preparing us for the courting scene in
4.4?

I have always loved reading about food, as English literature, more than
any other is rich in references to eating, table manners, etc, since the
time of Chaucer...Drinking in the AS halls was referred to as early as
Beowulf. These titles might be of help:

Toussaint-Samat, Maguelonne, 1987, translated by Anthea Bell, 1992.
_History of Food_ USA: Blackwell.

Tannahill, Reay, 1973. _Food in History_. New, Fully Revised and Updated
Edition, 1988. England: Penguin.

Good appetite and enjoy!
