Eat your way through the ages at the Geffrye Museum

Posted at 12:30 pm, January 17, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment, Food & Drink

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. Jude Brosnan

Tickets are £55; for info see funthyme.com.
