Historic Baking Experience Day gift voucher available for one to five people.
A fantastic experience day for all budding cooks, foodies and history enthusiasts! Led by our experienced Tudor re-enactor, who has taught cookery for many years, this half day course gives you the opportunity to enjoy baking historic bread and decorated jam tarts in our 18th century wood-fired bread oven. You will use traditional techniques and discover what huzzy or mawkin is used for. If there’s time, we may also include the making and decorating of a small medieval ‘soteltie’ from ‘marchpane’ (marzipan). With a small group of participants, you’ll be assured of individual attention and a great experience, and you will be welcome to spend the rest of the day enjoying the Museum.

We regret that this course is not really suitable for wheelchair users owing to the nature of our historic buildings, but we will do our best to help with any individual needs that you may have, so please drop us a line to discuss your requirements. Kneading bread, however, is a physical activity, and requires a fair degree of wrist, arm and upper body strength.
