This event is in the past.
Join Rachel de Thample, local food writer and chef, for an outdoor cooking session at Streatham Common Community Garden. We will look at ingredients popular during Victorian times including rhubarb, broad beans, cardoons, purple potatoes, golden beetroot and redcurrants (if they're ready in time!) with a quick recipe to go along with each.
The session will also look at how Victorians structured their meals, who cooked, and how class played a part. Mrs Beeton recipes will feature, along with other cooks of the day.
The cooking demonstration will be followed by food tasting and Q&A.
