Culinary Historians of Canada: First Catch your Gingerbread, with Sam Bilton

October 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

$19.10

Join food historian and writer Sam Bilton, author of First Catch Your Gingerbread, as she explores the history of this sweet teatime treat.

Did you know that a mistress of a French king was poisoned by a piece of gingerbread? Or that gingerbread men were thought in some quarters to be reminders of the human sacrifices made in bygone days?

Gingerbread has a long and auspicious history in Britain and from there to Canada. From the luxurious sweetmeat of the medieval era to generic biscuit figures found in cafes and shops around the country, gingerbread has been present in our culinary repertoire for centuries. Join food historian and writer Sam Bilton, author of First Catch Your Gingerbread, as she explores the history of this sweet teatime treat. A question and answer period will follow her talk.
