From railways to electric light, the Victorians are famous for changing the face of Britain. But what about in the kitchen?
Chaired by Polly Russell, our panel considers the impact of Queen Victoria’s eating habits on contemporary British food from three perspectives: history, recipes and the kitchen.
Annie Gray, author of The Greedy Queen: Eating with Victoria, sheds light on the real history of Victoria's notorious appetite and how it was fed. She is joined by Anthony Palmer-Watts of Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck, who has worked extensively with original Victorian recipes, and Marcus Wareing of The Gilbert Scott, who works in a Victorian Grade 1-listed building: the spectacular St Pancras Renaissance Hotel just next door to the British Library.
