Food History Day School

Posted on: 5th October 2014 By: Sue Davies

On Saturday I ran my first day school at Verulamium Museum.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I hope the people attending did too! 

The course, A Dozen People Who Changed Our Food, was part of St Albans Food Festival and explored individuals who had influenced what and how we eat in Britain.  We started with Elizabeth Raffald, a housekeeper and cookery book writer who set up an employment agency for domestic servants the late 18th century and ended with L. G. Pathak who established a pickle business in the 1950s that is now owned by St Albans based Premier Foods.

The Museum Service is expanding the adult learning programme.  Take a look at the What's On pages to see what is coming up.

I am planning to run some more food history events.  What do you think I should do? Would there be any interest in something about, food tools from the Salaman collection, the history of St Albans in ten recipes or the archaeology of a trifle?  Let me know via the comment form below.
