Elizabeth Raffald talk: 26 April 7PM (BST)

Hello folks!

I hope you are about to have a nice relaxing long Easter weekend. I’m just doing a very quick post to let you all know about a free Zoom talk I am giving on 26 April at 7pm (BST).

It is called The Extraordinary Life of Elizabeth Raffald, and over the course of about 45 minutes I’ll tell you about her remarkable achievements (in life AND death), as well as her dramatic rise and fall story. I’m leaving plenty of time afterwards for questions and discussion. I do hope that you can come.

You can order a free ticket to the Zoom talk via this Eventbrite link, or use the widget below.

Hopefully I shall see you soon.

Don’t forget that my book, Before Mrs Beeton: Elizabeth Raffald, England’s Most Influential Housekeeper, is available to buy from all good bookshops, and (at time of writing) at a discounted rate from publisher Pen & Sword.

P.S. I am also doing a talk in Manchester on 14 May, but I’ll tell you about that in a week or so.

‘A Bite of History’ Event Saturday 10th April 2021

Hello all – a very quick post to let you all know that this Saturday 10th April at noon (GMT) I’m taking part in a free event called ‘A Bite of History’. I’ll be in conversation with poet Dan Simpson and we’ll be discussing allsorts of things: food history and historical cooking, the evolution of our never-sated desire for sugar, the trials of running a restaurant and of course the blog. There’ll be a Q&A session too, so if you have any burning questions I shall do my best to answer them.

I’m also going to attempt a live cook spot – what could possibly go wrong!?

The event is part of the Inter-Action Book Club Cook Book Club which has been putting on free events throughout lockdown.

Hopefully see you there on the 10th of April.
