“Over the seasonal period the historic kitchen will be a flurry of activity as the kitchen staff begin preparations for the Christmas dinner which will be served to Lord and Lady at Audley End House. Come and meet the staff while you inhale the spices and smells from the seasonal dishes which would have once laddened the Braybrooke’s Christmas table and discover how the servants’ Christmas meal would be different.

Watch the staff prepare well-known festive staples including mince pies, Christmas pudding and gingerbread biscuits, or be inspired by the more unusual Victorian recipes such as Nesselrode Pudding.”
