A one session course, 6 hours for £18, concessions available or FREE to new learners!

Join our tutor Sadie Hirst on a lively and fascinating one day course, exploring history through the lens of food. The morning looks at food history from the Neolithic, Roman, Medieval and Tudor Periods. There will be a rare opportunity to view antiquarian cookbooks and handle pots and pans material culture from Sadie’s own personal collection.

The break for lunch includes tasters of what you will be making in your “hands on” historical cookery sessions in the afternoon. After lunch we go forward to the early 20th century to learn about Food of the British Army and Homefront during WW1, followed by a creative and fun afternoon recreating historic recipes for you to make and then cook at home.
