It makes no claims to authenticity; the author is clear that her takes on the recipes are adaptations inspired by the originals, and thinking of presenting them to modern diners. The good news is: they're good, for what they are; she always gives the source text, so you can see what she's done (and/or make your own choices); and the book is beautifully produced. It's not really "for us," if you will but I doubt you'll regret putting it on your kitchen bookshelf. As always only one man's opinion.
