A flavoursome Easter weekend
If you would like your Easter weekend to be about more than just eggs, come and pamper your taste buds at the preHistorisch Dorp. From 8 – 10 April, you can discover a world of new flavours at the museum and go home with lots of culinary inspiration. Ticket sales for this extraordinary weekend have started already.
The history of food
During the Easter weekend the preHistorisch Dorp becomes a real foodie heaven: find out all about the history of food!
Have you ever wondered how the Romans fed their armies in the Netherlands? How the hunter-gatherers made sure there was always food nearby? What a beautifully dressed table looked like in a medieval inn? How they used to cook in the kitchen of a simple artisan? Or when people started growing food in the surroundings of a farm house? You can find out all about this and more during Historisch Foodfest at the preHistorisch Dorp, from 8 until 10 April.
Learning from Newcomers
The Historisch Foodfest zooms in on food of Newcomers. The start of agriculture, the arrival of the Romans, trade with the Vikings, the discovery of the New World, and the arrival of migrant workers all have one thing in common: they brought new foods to our kitchen. Who ate what? And how has this influenced what you eat today? You will discover it all.
During Historisch Foodfest you will discover a world of new flavours. You can participate in tours by Wandeloogst and learn all about the edible plants and herbs at our museum. There’s more of them than you would imagine! What can you do with them in the kitchen? And how do you take care of them at home? Naturally, there will be plenty to taste at the museum. Come and see for yourself during the Wandeloogst!
These tours have been developed specifically for adults: they’re educational and inspiring.
