This event is part of our Civilisations Supperclub series. Get transported back in time; much back in time, to 13th century Syria ruled by the Ayyubid dynasty founded by Saladin. Before being vanquished by the Mongols, the Ayyubids ushered in great economic prosperity and revived a surge in cultural interest encompassing different areas; one of which was food.
One of the most comprehensive ancient recipe books found pertain to this era, and taking inspiration from the exotic and now-extinct meals that were served in the imperial houses of Damascus and Aleppo, we present our second dinner part of the Civilisations Supperclub series.
Short stories about the food from this bygone era will be narrated in between courses and diners will leave with a recipe booklet so they can cook up their own 13th Century Syrian recipes at home, along with tips and interesting facts about this era.
Evoking images of the riverbanks of the Barada and the Euphrates where Ayyubid imperial dinners were held, the supperclub dinner is housed at the historic London Canal Museum. For groups of 10-12, you can also make arrangements to arrive to the venue by boat (contact us for more information)
