Behind Closed Doors – Festive Food with Nora Gardner
December 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Although Christmas was banned during the Commonwealth, many people still celebrated in secret.
Join Nora Gardner, local guide and historian to learn about flavours and ingredients that inspired the 17th Century Christmas.
Visit Mrs Cromwell’s original kitchen; watch old recipes come to life, listen to the stories behind them and of course taste the results.
