Event description

Description

In this cooking workshop you will leave with an understanding of how the gut microbiome works; and why this is such a vital factor in our health and wellbeing. We will discuss which foods help and hinder digestion, the impact of modern medications, and the role of fermentation in nutrition.

We will look at gut health in the historical context and make some dishes including pickles, a broth and sauerkraut that Regency cooks are likely to have made – intuitively using ingredients which would have supported their gut health and protected them from serious disease.

This workshop is a series of 3 workshops which are a unique collaboration this Spring between The Regency Town House’s Paul Couchman, and Nutritional Therapist Lucy McCrickard from LGM Nutrition which delves into our past with Historical Cooking for Health - three themed cooking workshops in the original Town House kitchen in Hove.

These events offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in Brighton’s Regency historical culinary past, to explore nutrition of the time and understand how that translates into our modern cooking.

At the end of the course you will be presented with a booklet which includes recipes from the workshop, a fact sheet on the theme of the day plus tips for shopping and eating locally.
