Flatulence and Phlegm: cooking with herbs and salad in seventeenth century England
A fun food talk (with tastings) by Annie Gray!
Friday 17th May - starting at 6pm prompt

Annie Gray will deliver a fun and informative talk (with food tastings) at Wakefield Museum, where you will find out more about cooking in seventeenth century England. During our last chat with Annie, there was a suggestion of Tarragon Cream being on the menu, so don't come expecting just a boring lettuce leaf to try!

This event is free and open to anyone over 18 (starting at 6pm prompt). Booking is essential. Call (0113) 343 1910 or email youarewhatyouate@leeds.ac.uk to book.

Also a chance to see the museum's current temporary exhibition - Food for All Seasons - exploring food and eating in 14thC Wakefield through looking at documentary evidence of the Manor Court Rolls and Sandal Castle Inventory. Includes a display of the Wakefield Manor Court Rolls, Graves Accounts, and an amazingly beautiful 15thC Book of Hours.
