Ever wondered what dining at home was like before microwaves and television lap trays? Now you can experience dishes from history in an authentic setting as Funthyme are back with a night of ‘Food Through The Ages’ at the Geffrye Museum on Feb 7. Starting with a historical drink on arrival and a look around the displays of middle-class rooms from 1600 to today, you’ll enjoy a five course meal including soused breast of veal (c.1615), sautéed sole with sauce à la reine (c.1809) and Dead Man’s Arm (c.1800) which is now-a-day speak for jam roly-poly. Courses will be introduced by food historian and author of ”Taste – The Story of Britain Through Its Cooking‘, Kate Colquhoun. BYOB, though probably not jaegerbombs; they’re the drink of our epoch.
