including Free Admission to the Museum from 1.30pm to view the Feeding the Family special exhibition
Join Cook and Food Historian Monica Askay to learn about salads of the past and their varied and perhaps surprising ingredients.
This is a cookery demonstration with tastings. Salads from 3 different periods will be featured —– a medieval Herb and Flower Salat, A C17th Grand Sallet, and a Georgian Salamagundy. It will be an opportunity to find out about the ingredients used, and to taste these salads which are very different from each other and are very much of their periods.
The ticket includes wine, soft drinks and a handout on salads from medieval times to WW2.
Be inspired to create your own historically informed salads at home.
£40 per person (adults 18 and over), limited to 15 places.
