Event duration: 1 hour
Location: Blenheim Palace, The Marlborough Room
Food activist and writer Eleonora Galasso looks at how women have related to food across the centuries and gives a short cooking demonstration based around her book As the Romans Do.
Galasso says the very nourishment of the planet lies in women who feed new lives through the process of childbirth and nurture their families as they grow. And she takes a humorous look at the world’s food history through the lens of femininity.
As the Romans Do is a celebration of Roman cooking and lifestyle and provides recipes for meals for all occasions and at any time of the day, from earthy breakfasts to al fresco meals and dinner parties.
Galasso grew up between Rome and the Apulia region. A well travelled journalist, she trained at the Ateneo Italiano della Cucina and has a masters degree in gastronomic culture. Her passion for food led her to start running food workshops and pop-up kitchen events in Rome and Paris. Extremely influential with her social media, she consults for major international brands and industry magazines.
