Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.

At the Queen’s Table: Food and Dining in the 16th Century from Anne Boleyn to Elizabeth I
The 16th century saw some of the most dramatic change culturally, politically and economically in all of England’s history. The world of cooking, food and dining was among those areas that evolved substantially under the Tudor monarchs and into the Elizabethan age. From the banquets of Henry VIII through to the court entertainments of Elizabeth I, food transformed from the modest cooking of the Middle Ages to a style and presentation influenced by the Italian Renaissance.
In this illustrated talk, professionally trained chef, culinary writer and educator, Carl Raymond will chart the course of food as it was cooked, prepared and appeared on royal tables throughout the 16th century. Anchored by the three great Tudor queens, Anne Boleyn, Mary Stuart and Elizabeth, the talk will discuss cooking techniques and methods, menus, dining etiquette and actual recipes from the period. A discussion will focus on the kitchens at Hampton Court Palace, now restored and still functioning after 400 years which give the modern day culinary enthusiast the most vivid image of exactly how food was obtained and meals for hundreds of guests were accomplished. Attendees will leave with a collection of recipes true to the Tudor period but adapted for the modern kitchen should they wish to try a royal banquet at home.
Date: June 2nd at 6:30 PM
