Dining in the Roman fashion!

Today we got to spend some time with the fabulous Bishop’s Stortford branch of the Royal  British Legion ladies group when we joined their meeting to give a talk on Dining in the Roman fashion.  The talk looked at the ettiquette of dining as well as the challenges of producing a large meal using hot coals on a cooking platform and finished by discussing some of the types of wine enjoyed with a meal.  After the talk we were treated to tea and home made cakes – what’s not to like?

If you are part of a local group and like the sound of this talk, or its companion Cooking in the Roman style, please do get in touch with the museum.
