Haddon Hall – Tudor Cookery Weekend

Haddon-Tudor-1-8-6-08

Over the weekend of  7/8 June Haddon Hall (a glorious fortified medieval manor house dating from the 12th Century) held a Tudor Cookery Weekend.  Members of a Tudor reenactment society had travelled from near and far to prepare, serve, and devour food of the period.  The privileged few took their places in the Banqueting Hall where they were served in style with all the pomp and ceremony expected in 15/16th Century England.

Tudor food in preparation: plenty of dates and pieces of crumbled egg garnish these sweet/savoury dishes.

Near the entrance to Haddon Hall, just after one crosses over the River Wye bridge, is the Gardener’s Cottage with some excellent topiary.

A hidden door from the side of the Hall leads into the Elizabethan gardens. Haddon-Door-1-8-6-08
