Description

The King's Dinner and the Nation's Appetite

The fifth event in the Leeds Cultural Conversations series 2019/20.

Presented by Dr Rachel Rich.

For every day that George III ate at Kew, a record was kept of the dishes he was served, and of all the other food cooked at the Palace, for everyone down to the lowliest servants. This talk will show you some examples of the King’s menus, alongside cookbooks for the middle classes. To what extent did the royal dinner table reflect the taste of the nation? This event will coincide with International Women's Day.

Date: 4 March 2020

Time: 12:30 - 13:30 (arrival from 12:00)

Venue: Sullivan Room, Leeds Town Hall, Leeds LS1 3AD
