Sunday at the Gardiner: Curator Tour and Light Fare

Sun November 03, 2019 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Co-presented by The Food Dudes

This unique Sunday morning experience offers visitors a rare chance to explore the exhibition Savour: Food Culture in the Age of Enlightenment alongside its curator, Meredith Chilton, before the Museum opens to the public. This private tour is followed by light morning fare courtesy of CLAY restaurant and inspired by Chilton’s new cookbook, The King’s Peas: Delectable Recipes and their Stories from the Age of Enlightenment.

About the exhibition

Food and dining were transformed in Europe during the age of Enlightenment by profound changes that still resonate today. What many of us eat, the way food is cooked, and how we dine continues to be influenced by radical changes that occurred in France from 1650 until the French Revolution in 1789. Savour: Food Culture in the Age of Enlightenment explores the story of this transformation with rare objects, fascinating histories, and amusing stories. Learn more
