Regency Cookery

I’ve come across a wonderful website on HISTORIC FOOD! Great find… especially if you live in England, for you can join in on courses — like a Regency Cookery. Who could resist learning to make such a dish as “Haunch of Mutton dressed like Venison”?! ” Ivan Day “runs unique practical courses on period cookery, many of which take place in an historic kitchen in his own home, a seventeenth century farmhouse on the edge of the English Lake District.” Can you imagine?!

“As well as advertising the Historic Food Courses, this site contains a wealth of unique information, recipes and images relating to the history of English food. It demonstrates how Ivan uses period cookery illustrations, antique utensils and other primary sources to re-create the remarkable food of the past.”

And Ivan Day, recently (7 March 2011) was on Royal Upstairs Downstairs (BBC2) at CASTLE HOWARD! Oh, such memories visiting that place in the aftermath of having viewed the wonderful TV series Brideshead Revisited.

Anyway, there’s much to see so check out their site!  There’s recipes, info, courses, even Ivan Day’s book (and you know how much I LOVE books!). Highly recommended.
