Join Richard Fitch for a Lunchtime Lecture about the refresh of the palace's famous Tudor kitchens.
Our monthly Lunchtime Lectures are a member favourite, always a sell-out and a great way to meet the people who work behind the scenes at the palaces.
This month, we'll be joined by Richard Fitch, Historic Kitchens Interpretation Coordinator at Historic Royal Palaces. Richard will talk about the research and decisions made in the refresh of Henry VIII's Kitchens, which re-opened in May 2018.
Henry VIII's Kitchens at Hampton Court Palace were the largest of Tudor England and once produced over 800 meals a day for the King's hungry household. They are now under the care of Historic Royal Palaces' Tudor kitchens team, who help bring the kitchens to life for thousands of visitors every day.
The team experiment with traditional recipes, ingredients and cooking methods to give visitors a sense of what working in the kitchens of our palaces would have been like in the past.
