The subject that would fascinate me would be who did what, when and where in
the kitchen and what the pecking order was. For example who decided to serve
chicken, who killed, cleaned, seasoned and cooked that chicken and who took
it to the table. I doubt it was all done by the same person but I didn't
know how duties were divided.
> The new blog entry for the Hampton Court cooks
> (http://tudorcook.blogspot.com/ ) is looking for suggestions for adult
> education courses. The current blog says (in part):
> "If you could choose an adult education programme to come to at
> Hampton Court, what would be your subject of choice? What do you
> want to know?
> "This is a partially hypothetical exercise, so no limitations on how
> wacky or far out the ideas can be......except NO practical cookery
> courses as that's an assumed 'given' in the pantheon of wished for
> courses already!
> "Half day, full day, evening lectures, a combination of all or any,
> linked thematic series of talks, hands on sessions, practical, pure
> theory.....whatever you could possibly think of on any topic linked
> to Hampton Court, so art, history, clothes and costume, conservation,
> etc. etc. etc."
> I don't expect that most of us can get there, given the US economy at
> present, but it might be nice to make some suggestions from our point of
> view. Their cookery ranges up to the early 1800s (IIRC) - Georgian
> cookery, I think. Any flights of fancy for the imagination??
