Hazel Forsyth, Senior Curator at the Museum of London, explores the eating habits of early modern Londoners from simple ale-house and tavern fare to lavish feasts in Livery Company Halls. Drawing on the richness of contemporary evidence, including an unpublished 16th century Feast Book, Hazel will reference silver items displayed in the Made for the Table exhibition and will explore how eating out has been a fundamental part of London life for hundreds of years.
