A Gastronomic Utopia – The Grand Tour

During the era of the Grand Tour, wealthy young gentleman visited the sites of the classical past and recorded their experiences of art and architecture.

In Renaissance Italy there was a popular fantasy for a gastronomic utopia - the Land of Cockaigne.

At the Naples Carnival of 1746, the Land of Cockaigne became a reality; a procession of food laden carriages paraded through the streets. The food was heaped up in front of the royal palace, protected by guards, until the king gave the sign for the starving crowds to plunder the edible delights.

Led by renowned food historian Ivan Day, this unique demonstration will revive historical recipes and provide a gastronomic experience like no other.

This event is hosted in partnership with The Harley Gallery and wider consortium partners.
