This year sees the re-presentation of the Tudor Kitchens at Hampton Court, most famous under King Henry VIII. Over the last twenty years this space has been used to experiment with cookery from the Tudor Court. In this lecture food historian Marc Meltonville will explore the methods, ideas and outcomes of this fascinating work.

Marc Meltonville is a food historian and author. Marc has appeared on television shows including Tales from the Palaces, Heston Blumenthal’s Perfect Christmas, The Great British Bake-Off, A Tudor Feast for Christmas and The Hidden Palace of Henry VIII. He is happiest when researching the history of food and has travelled the world in the name of research. He can often be found in the historic kitchens at Hampton Court Palace.
