Welcome to An Tir's Culinary Symposium 2011. This will be a weekend for all those interested in pre-17th century cooking. We'll be cooking, eating, sharing research, and learning together. There will be classes for everyone from those new to historical food to those who have loved it for years, covering topics including fun and delicious historical tourney food, Ottoman and Persian cuisines fit for a sultan, 16th century German cookery, English city foods, comfit making and other candied delights, a vicarious tour of King Henry the VIII's kitchen at Hampton Court Palace with recipes, and so much more.
This event will be held in An Tir, in the Shire of Wyewood (Enumclaw, Washington) on the weekend of April 15-17, 2011.
Please keep your eyes on this site over the next few weeks as we will be adding more information about the event.
