‘In this illustrated lecture/demonstration, food historian and artist Ivan Day outlines the evolution of edible table art from the early Renaissance to the 19th century. From gilded sugar coins distributed at 15th-century Italian wedding feasts to edible models of Victorian London omnibuses, edible table art has been of interest to people for hundreds of years. Day will introduce the materials, equipment, and moulds used by past masters of such edible ephemera and demonstrate how they were used.’
