The Cook's Tour

Fed up of the cold already, and wishing you could get away from it all?  Why not sign up for a free Cook's Tour on Tuesday 25 October at 3.00-4.30pm, and journey around the world exploring the historical role of food, remedies and global interchange in our medical and cultural lives?

As part of our Recipes and Remedies series, this free event will investigate the tensions underlying the contents of the kitchen cabinet, and place 21st-century debates around localism and healthy eating in a historical perspective.

The event will consist of a tour of Wellcome Collection's permanent galleries followed by an illustrated talk in the Wellcome Library, plus a chance to view items from the library's Special Collections.

Speakers:

  •  Richard Aspin, Head of Research and Scholarship, Wellcome Library.
  • Valerie Brown, Visitor Services Assistant, Wellcome Collection.
  • Helen Wakely, Archivist, Wellcome Library.
For details of how to attend please see the Wellcome Collection website.
