Michelle Cavanagh - The Brontës and Food
Eating is one of the pleasures of life. But how different is our diet to that of the Brontë family? And what constituted good food in 19th century Yorkshire? From the background of a Yorkshire grandmother, Michelle Cavanaugh explores the Brontë relationship with food, in their own lives and those of some of their characters.
And another one from the Brontë Society, a talk included in the Ilkey Literary Festival:
