From: £45.00

Categories: ,

Join food historian Ivan Day on a remarkable day of recreating spectacular historical jellies and ice creams.


  • Fri 25th October 2019

Spectacular moulded jellies and ice creams were once all the rage in Britain, particularly in the Georgian and Victorian Periods. The sheer beauty of these forgotten culinary treasures has to be seen (and tasted) to be believed. Marvel at portraits of monarchs in jelly and ice creams in the shape of swans and courting doves by joining Ivan Day in a spectacular demonstration and recreation of our lost culinary past.

The day begins from 10.30 with morning coffee and homemade biscuits, followed by the demonstration at 11am. An aperitif is served prior to a buffet style lunch and the day comes to a close from 2.30pm onwards.
