Where three of Ireland’s top chefs travel to opulent estates to recreate dishes from the past.
I love reading about recreating olden days food! I even looked for Medieval or Renaissance food clubs when I was younger, but couldn’t find any local ones.
Thank you for this!
Your tempting me to get Netflix again…
Ivan Day is a really interesting fellow in England who researches and occasionally teaches hands on cooking classes about olden foods. I’ve wanted to attend one of his classes ever since I learned of him. Unfortunately he hasn’t taught in several years. But check out his website! It has some great info.
Since he hasn’t taught in several years (and I had no idea of his age) I began sleuthing. He does have some videos on line. I watched a shorter one shot at Hillwood in DC. Some of the others were an hour or so in length. On my to-do list now!
Thanks for posting this, I’m enjoying the series.
Check out the BBC series with Sue Perkins and Giles(?) Coren, called The Supersizers. They are assigned to live in a historical era for a week or so at a time, cooking from period menus, with period equipment and ingredients in forms appropriate to the era. Wikipedia has an entry about the show
Where are you finding episodes of this to view?
I am going to have to check this out.
Hulu. It is a great show. I wish there were more episodes.
It was last year so I don’t recall. I have Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Britbox, and Acorn!
Wasn’t showing in Netflix France, unfortunately.
I have a really interesting cook book called "The Philosopher’s Kitchen’. It’s all recipes from ancient Greece & Rome. The recipes have been updated in some cases to use modern & non-toxic ingredients. The Lamb With Pomegranate Seeds is terrific.
