Join culinary historian Richard Foss for a lively talk on the diet and manners of Shakespeare’s age. Shakespeare and his contemporaries enjoyed a varied diet by contemporary standards, enlivened by spices from Asia, vegetables from the Middle East and New World, and by pickling and preserving techniques that made vivid flavors available all year.

Everything was served according to the class of the diners – common folk ate heartily but simply, while noble banquets featured edible sculptures designed to mystify guests about what they were eating.
