The Anthropologists of Eating believe that daily kitchen skills are vital to individual and cultural identity, our mental and physical health, the rhythm to our lives and to family economics.
We provide opportunities to explore and share culinary skills and knowledge of health, heritage and culture.

Events & Feasts
Bespoke and/or co-created events and feasts are thematically based - from Tudor banquets to sustainable urban eating. They are a stimulating and pleasurable way to discover new tastes, knowledge and skills. We focus on traditional food skills and practices using ingredients and recipes from wide ranging historical and geographical sources. We create and host salon discussions, film nights, slideshows, conference lunches, museum and gallery installations and food festival projects and are open to ideas!
