WWI Food drop-in event Monday 25th February

WWI Food drop-in event

How about sampling some of the food that was on offer during the war?  Join food historians Jan and Richard Crouch on Monday 25th February between 11.00 and 3.30 to find out more about food during the war and food cooked to WWI recipes.

Food was rationed during the war, so being on the Home Front often meant finding how to make new dishes from the limited foodstuffs available.  And some of the recipes are very ingenious!

When the peace treaties were signed in 1919, there were celebrations throughout the land including Teesdale.  We know there were Peace processions in several villages and many street parties.  Jan and Richard will recreate a 1919 Peace street party.

Richard will give a short illustrated talk about food during the war at 11.30 and 2.30 but you can drop in at any time to talk to them, see their displays and sample some of the food people cooked a hundred years ago.

And remember – our project exhibition is still on, so you could visit (or re-visit) that as well.

Free with admission, to annual pass-holders and Friends
