CANCELLED – FOOD & FICTION ~ Chaucer to Dickens

Unfortunately the following event will no longer be taking place due to insufficient numbers. We hope the WEA will return at a later date.

What did Chaucer’s cook prepare in his medieval kitchen? Did Shakespeare live on ‘cakes and ale’? Why did the much-maligned wife of Charles Dickens publish a menu book under the name of ‘Lady Maria Clutterbuck’? Food has always been an important way of showing in literature how people lived, or revealing something about their characters.

Join us as we dip into the works of these great writers, and explore some of the delicacies mentioned in their immortal poetry and prose. Attendees will gather in the Library and Judith Hedley will lead you through the course via zoom. Follow this link to find out more: WEA
