The Spice of Life: Opening up New Worlds Through Taste
12 November, 2020, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This is an online event.
A simple meal of pitta, crackers, chutney, daal, rice and spices virtually served by three actors: a sailor; an East India Company man; and an Indian traveller who each deliver a monologue on trade, empire and culinary crossings. The scene: an 18th century Mogul court complete with live Indian music – vocals, instrumental and tabla. The music and monologues unveil the seasons and emotions of the time through the Raga and the song lyrics. New worlds will unfold through the tastings.
Live-streamed from the beautiful gothic Waldegrave Drawing Room at Strawberry Hill House Twickenham, you are invited to share an afternoon of music, storytelling and food. Once you have registered your details, you will be sent a recipe sheet for the meal and details of how to log on to the online event.
In partnership withPandit Ram Sahai Sangit Vidyalaya Institute of Performing Arts & Heritage
