Scouring my inbox this morning over a cup of coffee, I came across these save the dates from the Culinary Historians of New York:
June 8: Claudia Roden on her new book, “The Food of Spain”
June 16: Marc Meltonville, food historian of Hampton Court Palace, on “Reconstructing Historic Royal Kitchens: The Tudor Kitchens of Henry VII and the Newly Discovered Kitchens of George III”
I received Roden’s Arabesque – on Moroccan food – as a gift as soon as it came out and have been cooking from it ever since, so I’m excited to see her take on Spanish food. I hadn’t heard about the discovery of George III’s kitchens, but Meltonville’s talk on the kitchens of the monarchy sounds like something I won’t want to miss.
