What's ON


Chris Duffy – The Auchtermuchty Food Museum Chris Duffy is a former actor and puppeteer who now runs venues in Edinburgh. He is the founder and curator of The Auchtermuchty Food Museum; a project he created to share the collection of food related books, photographs, manuscripts and eating related ephemera he has gathered over the past 35 years. Through exhibition, publication and events he aims to contribute to the dialogue about our food, and its place in our culture, history and future. The collection features a very broad range of material including artworks, printed cookbooks from the sixteenth to the twenty first century, 1970s cookery cards and periodicals, personal manuscript recipes from people of all backgrounds, novels, picture books, photographs of people cooking and eating and archive material from leading figures in the world of food and drink, including the Fanny Cradock Archive. His talk will look at the work of 3 eighteenth century food writers and the links through the food eaten to the diet book of Leslie House and our very own Eat Like an Earl Project.
