Food History & Historical Cookery (POSTPONED - New date to be confirmed)

Join Sadie Hirst, a Food Historian, Columnist, Public Speaker, Tutor and multi award winning artisan baker and qualified chef. She is currently studying full time for her Master’s Degree in Heritage Education at Bishop Grosseteste University. For many years Sadie has been an avid collector of recipes and cookbooks and is passionate about preserving our culinary heritage. She loves sharing her recipes with her readers through her monthly food column for The Lincolnshire Echo and other local publications and as a regular guest on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. Sadie enjoys working with many community organisations with her talks on food history, workshops and demonstrations on historical cookery.
Throughout this course you will examine cookery books as a unique form of literature, handle and discuss kitchen items from the past that represent cookery practices no longer in common use, explore herbs, spices, recipes, material culture, antiquarian cookbooks and humours, take a fascinating look at the food and drink innovators of Georgian Britain, look at food of the British Army during WW1 and on the Homefront through demonstrations, talks and discussions.
