At Christmas We Feast: The history of the Christmas dinner with Annie Gray

December 3 @ 2:00 pm GMT

Turkey, trimmings, pudding and brandy butter – but where do our festive food traditions come from?

Join Annie Gray on a delectable trip through time, from the earliest mentions of extravagant meals at Christmas to the trappings and traditions of the present day. From medieval celebrations to holidays in Victorian Britain, discover the rich history and cultural tradition of the joy of Christmas feasts.

Annie Gray is a historian, cook, broadcaster and writer specialising in the history of food and dining in Britain from around 1600 to the present day. She does her research in libraries and archives but is a firm believer in cooking as research as well. She is the resident food historian on BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet and has presented TV history documentaries including Victorian Bakers and The Sweetmakers.

What’s Online is a series of talks and events delivered by The National Archives’ experts and special guests. Talks last approximately 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

This online talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams.
