Have you ever wondered what a true Victorian Christmas dinner looked like? What foods were on the table? How did the tables of the rich compare to those in less fortunate households?
Caroline McLachlan Darling, a culinary food historian, will explore these topics and more during a talk on Victorian Christmas Food at Norfolk County Archives & Eva Brook Donly Museum.
Darling has been studying Victorian foodways since the age of 15 when she began cooking on a wood stove. Since that point, she has prepared cuisine on a number of different wood burning rangers and open hearths. Currently, she can be found at Hamilton’s Dundurn National Historic Site as one of the cooking demonstrators.
