Eat and drink like the Wordsworths

26 Jun

Syllabub at Wordsworth House

Because I spend my life surrounded by Georgian vegetables and fruit, I’m always interested in opportunities to learn more about how they would have dined in the 18th century – and now there’s a brilliant chance for you to do the same.

Join us at Wordsworth House and Garden on Wednesday, 10 July for an exclusive Georgian dining experience. Or come along tomorrow, Friday, 28 June, to enjoy some delicious wines and cheeses, and learn about 18th-century drinking habits.

Tomorrow night you can join Nick and Wendy from Shills of Cockermouth and the Wordsworth House and Garden team at 6pm for a very special wine and cheese tasting in our dining room and Georgian kitchen.

It includes an out-of-hours view of the house. Tickets are £25 each and booking is essential. Call us on 01900 824805 to reserve your place.

On Wednesday, July 10, there’s an exclusive opportunity to dine like a Georgian.

Arrive at 5pm to enjoy drinks and cookery demonstrations in our 18th-century kitchen by my friends, the costumed servants. Learn some simple-to-replicate Georgian recipes to impress at your next dinner party, and have an evening view of the house.

You will then retire to the Trout Hotel next door for a three-course Georgian meal, which includes some of the delicacies demonstrated. Tickets are £50 per person and, again, booking is essential – ring the number above to secure your place.

I wish I could go!
