Food History - Stratford Chefs School

Courses

Food History

This course introduces students to a more comprehensive understanding of cookery foundations by surveying the evolution of food habits at key moments in history. By examining the ingredients, technologies, tools, and cookery methods used, students will begin to understand that our ancestors were keen to explore as many tastes and seasonings as their circumstances allowed. In addition to lecture, each student will cook a primary-source recipe in order to engage with the sights, smells, tastes, textures, and practicalities of pre-modern cookery. By approaching history through the lens of food, students will gain awareness of the larger role that cooks and cookery play in everyday life.
