About The Event
In conjunction with the Richmond Shakespeare Festival’s performances of Taming of the Shrew, the Dining with Shakespeare guided tour explores what dining was like in Elizabethan England. What are medlars, metheglin, and lamb’s wool? Join Tour Guide Tracy Weldon for a look at sources of ingredients, culinary customs, and table manners during Shakespeare’s lifetime. A few quotes from Taming of the Shrew and other plays will be referenced during the tour through our seasonal displays in the Great Hall, Dining Parlor, and Tudor Kitchen. Take home period recipes and sweet treat!
