Tudor Christmas food

Saturday 8 December 2018


The course

Ditch the turkey, and have a go with something really traditional! A Tudor Christmas was a time of food, food and more food, when all the best things came out of the store cupboard to fuel twelve days of eating, drinking and making merry. We shall be cooking up a storm with traditional pies, twelfth night cake and subleties.
