The Gibson Library Society Lecture: A History of British Saffron

June 16 @ 20:00 - 21:30

‘Fool’s Gold: A History of British Saffron’ an illustrated talk by food historian Sam Bilton

Saffron has always allured us with its golden hues. It was the darling of the medieval kitchen, the saviour of the apothecary’s chest, and gave cloth a regal glow.

Sam will explore the culinary history of this spice in Britain and look at the modern revival in its cultivation.

This lecture will take place on Zoom!
