Historical Food

IMEMS and Blackfriars Restaurant in Newcastle have been collaborating for several years with research on medieval food. We have a regular public lecture series, teaching and tasting classes for undergraduates and postgraduates at the restaurant as part of their courses, and talks in the UK and abroad, notably the Culinary Institute of America in California. We have also developed a related research initiative on medieval gardens, in literature, art, and historical texts, and are working with a local nursery and developing cross-faculty contacts.
