Course description

Tea with Mr Darcy:

A light-hearted look at food and fiction in the time of Jane Austen. Regency snacks will be provided. White soup at the Netherfield ball, hot-house fruit at Pemberley, humbler fare at Longbourne - the food served on social occasions in Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' is revealing not only of social history but also of character. We may not be able to offer Colin Firth in a wet shirt, but with Mr Darcy as our guide and food as our focus this should be a lively day school.

By the end of the course I should be able to: Describe some of the essential features of food provision, mealtimes and typical recipes in 1790 -1813; Cite ways in which Austen uses food (e.g. for drama, for characterisation, for atmosphere) in 'Pride and Prejudice' and other Austen novels you may know; Give an opinion of the Regency snacks provided.
