The digital dinner party

The British Academy on Zoom Webinar
Free

Join food historian and artist Tasha Marks for a unique taste of the Summer Showcase. Inspired by the work of three British Academy researchers, this cook-along and conversation is sure to be food for thought. The pairings start with a cocktail, influenced by Sue Miller’s work on Latin American music, then Rachel Rich will join Tasha to discuss her research into royal menus over the main, a pie fit for a king. Finally, a dialogue over dessert, as we join Tasha in the kitchen to create an edible homage to Emma Bond’s research on the 19th century sugar industry in Greenock, Scotland. Tune in for a historic dinner party like no other, with discussion and delicacies aplenty.

Prepare your ingredients for the cook-along:

First course: The Charanga del Norte

Second course: Raised Beefsteak Pie

Third course: Scottish Shortbread
