When Olive Oil was for Earache – July 9th

9th July 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

£8.00 – £18.50
When Olive Oil was for Earache – A talk by Sharn Matthews

Talk Overview

British food changed considerably during the 20th century as a result of new technology, international influences and celebrity chefs. This talk highlights some of the key changes which have resulted in our favourite foods and how we eat today.

The Speaker

Sharn worked in and with museums for over 40 years, starting with the Wisbech and Fenland Museum and culminating in running the Grosvenor Museum, Chester. Currently she volunteers with Northampton and Oundle Museums. Most of her work has been with costume collections but she has also explored various aspects of social and decorative art history on the way. Sharn is also a keen embroiderer and lover of historic recipes.
