Historic Cookery Workshops
All Kitchenalia Workshops take place at their place in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Workshops tend to teach you the secrets of baking the original way. Wood-fired cooking, dough troughs, peels and dockers will be just some of the techniques we will explore, combining genuine artefacts from the museum’s collection, old recipes and a few modern twists.
