Fancyan evening of highbrow culinary delight and historical entertainment? Good golly, yes please! Conceptual catering and events company Funthyme have come up with an event for culture vultures who love their tucker. ‘Food Through The Ages’ invites diners to step back in time to experience how previous generations ate, set against the atmospheric backdrop of the Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch.
Attendees will get a chance to explore the Geffrye’s impressive array of English middle-class living rooms, dating from the 1600s to the present day and to top it off the event includes a slap-up 5-course meal in the restaurant, featuring a key recipe from each century. The menu consists of dishes such as soused breast of veal, pork with prunes and Dead Mans Arm – don’t worry it’s not as bad as it sounds it’s actually Jam Roly Poly! Each course will be introduced by Kate Colquhoun, food historian and author of ‘Taste – The Story of Britain Through Its Cooking’. The ticket price includes a historical drink on arrival and it’s bring your own booze for the meal. It all sounds frightfully jolly – ball gowns and tuxes at the ready, or what?
Tickets are £55 each, for bookings call the Geffrye on 0207 739 9893 or email email@example.com.
