Toss that turkey leg away; let's learn about what kings really would have feasted on in medieval times! We'll talk about some of the most outrageous feasts and foods from Medieval and Tudor England, then learn how to read medieval recipes, adapt them to modern cooking, and make a feast of our own! Due to the nature of historical cooking, recipes may contain nuts and gluten. ($17 Supplies Fee is submitted directly to instructor at 1st class.) This class may take place over Zoom if needed due to COVID 19 concerns. A grocery list will be provided; there is no ‘supplies fee’ if this class is conducted online.
