A little further down you can find information on our school visits and workshops.
One of our passions here at The Time Travelling Cook is visiting Schools and helping to bring history to life.
Visit any Castle and you can find out about the everyday life of Kings and Queen, and while the Castles do it very well, our aim is to spotlight everyday life of the common people and how certain historic events effected them.
Our School visits take the form of interactive talks and workshops.
We believe Children learn best when immersed in the era , so our workshops encourage dressing up, exploring, handling objects and craft making.
Workshops include games such as the "Rubbish Game" which encourages the children to become historic detectives to find out about a specific person and the " Did they have" runaround game which not only gets the children thinking about food of the chosen era, but also helps run off some excitable energy!
These are just 2 of the many games/activities that we use in the workshops. The workshops and talks are adapted to the needs of the Teacher and the Pupils and can be booked to occur at any point in the subject teaching timeline.
We suggest an age of 7 and above for our workshops but we can arrange a handling session for younger pupils.
The workshops can range from 1 hour basic up to full day workshops which can accommodate 3 to 4 classes at different times of the day.

The recipe of the month is a new feature and over on Twitter and Instagram we had a wee vote to see what Era our followers would like the recipe to come from for the next few months.
Traditional Scottish was the era chosen for February and for that we are heading to Orkney with a recipe called BROONIE, which is a traditional oatmeal gingerbread.
6 oz medium oatmeal
2 heaped tablespoons of soft butter
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg, beaten
a pinch of salt
6 oz plain flour
4 oz caster sugar
2 tablespoons of treacle
1/2 pint full fat milk
1 tsp of ground ginger
Pre heat the oven to 170C
Grease a loaf tin approx 8 inch x 4 inch
In a large bowl mix the oatmeal and flour
Rub in the butter
Add the baking powder, sugar, salt and ginger and mix
Warm the treacle gently
Bit by bit mix the beaten egg into the treacle and then stir in half the milk
Stir the treacle mix into the flour mix and then start to add the rest of the milk until you have a mix that drops easily from the spoon. (you may need a bit more milk that stated)
Put the mixture into your tin and pop in the oven for approx 1 hour or until it is well risen and a skewer comes out clean if put in the centre.
Take the tin out of the oven, allow to cool slightly before removing from the tin and cool on a rack
This cake cuts much better if you allow it to "set" overnight.
