General information about Forgotten Fare:

Forgotten Fare is a mother and daughter partnership, specialising in the recreation of food and drink of late medieval and Tudor times. This led them to food and cooking in later periods including, Victorian, Medieval, WW1 and vintage 20th Century.

One really common comment they received from the public is “How do you know all this stuff?”. Behind every re-enactment, be it Roman, medieval or Second World War, there is an enormous amount of hard work, dedication and research.  Find out the lengths people will go to just to ‘get it right’ for both the public, and academics, working out how something was used, quantities and timings for recipes when no instructions are provided. How do you source  replica artefacts, materials, recipes (not just food!)? Find out.
