This year sees the re-presentation of the Tudor Kitchens at Hampton Court Palace, most famous under King Henry VIII.

Over the last 20 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.

This event will be held in our Clore Learning Centre and not in the palace.

Marc Meltonville is a food historian and author who 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.

Marc 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.
