Lecture & Tasting: Sugar & Spice

with Dr. Annie Gray

Food historian Annie Gray explores the eighteenth century love of spices, from curry to gingerbread, and punch to chocolate wine. We’ll bust the myth of spices as disguise for dodgy food, and instead show how spices were celebrated as medicine, as romantic must-haves and above all else as great tasting ingredients. An evening of tasty Georgian delights, with recipes and tastings to titivate you in time for the festive season. Writer, speaker, consultant and broadcaster Annie Gray is the resident food historian in BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet. She’s a TV regular, with forthcoming appearances on the BBC’s Victorian Bakers and James Martin: Home Comforts.
