For the first time, the Museum of London will be running a series of cookery workshops exploring food from the Roman era through to the Victorian period. Members of the public will be given the rare opportunity to prepare ancient recipes and taste bygone dishes. Participants will be guided through historic flavours and fashions by celebrated TV chef and food historian Annie Gray. Victorian food has a reputation for being stodgy and bland, laden with meat and loaded with over-cooked vegetables. In a period of industrialisation and urbanisation, of Empire abroad and of the beginnings of intensive farming at home, food represents all that was good and bad about the Victorians. This workshop will challenge the myths of unhealthy Victorian stodge with participants being invited to reproduce dishes from the period - including a Dickensian punch. Copies of the recipes will be available to take away with them so that they can recreate the meals at home to surprise family and friends on special occasions. So roll up your sleeves and get ready for a journey through tastes gone by. The equipment and ingredients will be provided.
