Associated with the court of King Richard II, and surviving in a number of hand-scribed 15th century copies, the Forme of Cury is the most famous English cookbook of the Middle Ages - and we a copy here in the North East at Durham!


We’ll take the original recipes and present them with the help of Blackfriars chefs for the modern palate and introduce you to the historical period as well through films, podcasts explaining the period, the history, and how medieval people lived. We also have live Q&A sessions and a lively Facebook page to show-off your own creations!
