Nowadays, we eat a lot of meat, fish, vegetables, fruits and herbs, but the variation in them has declined considerably in history. In this cooking class, you cook delicious food from Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the seventeenth century.

Forgotten recipes & flavours

During the Forgotten Foods cooking class, we offer a range of forgotten ingredients, seasonings and flavour combinations. You are getting to know some forgotten flavourings from history such as devils dung, long pepper, garum, verjus and grains of paradise. A cooking class full of discoveries!

Cooking class

The Forgotten Foods cooking class starts with a historical aperitif and some appetizers. Meanwhile, we give an entertaining presentation about cooking and eating in history. While you are cooking, you will discover many more secrets about historical ingredients, forgotten flavours and ancient dishes. Afterwards, you take home all the recipes used in the cooking class, so you can cook them at home as well.

You can book this cooking class with a group of 8 to 18 people. We offer them every day of the week. They can be booked in either the afternoon or evening, at any time. The cooking class lasts approximately 4 hours. Prices include all food and drinks.
