Friday 21st July – 7.30pm
Dr Pete Collinge & Pete Dale (late of the Dining Room)
Historian Dr Peter Collinge presents an entertaining, illustrated talk on the extensive range of food and drink consumed by the citizens of Georgian Ashbourne. Drawing on evidence from the town’s grocers’ shops, household accounts, bills and receipts, diaries, letters and newspapers, he reveals elegant dinners, picnics, public celebrations and private parties, street food, drunken revels, and the darker world of food and drink adulteration. While Pete Dale cooks up a tasting menu of Georgian delights, all with a welcoming glass of Rum Punch.
Come along for a fascinating evening with an illustrated talk by a local expert and a tasting menu by our well known local chef.
