Sunday 19th November

Blackfriars Restaurant and Durham University's IMEMS* presents 'A Taste of the Past', a series of interactive activities, tastings, a poster exhibition and live music, all connected to medieval food. Featuring the story of the earliest medieval recipe collection, associated with Durham Cathedral, the event will look at medieval food in a wider compass: how was food sourced, prepared, preserved and eaten? What was medieval food? Working with the modern restaurant kitchen at Blackfriars brings all of this into a contemporary perspective, with insights from the restaurant bringing this cuisine to the table, and with a delicious musical accompaniment.
