Want to know your yuzu from your popping candy? Fancy trying a grasshopper or even squid ink? Well now’s your chance, if you dare…
Enter the Inventing Room at the Roald Dahl Museum on Thursday 30 October. The Museum’s resident foodie Victoria Glass will be leading visitors young and old alike on a journey that will tickle the tastebuds and play with the senses. The interactive one hour sessions will be packed with foodie fun, and will end with the chance to make a truffle with a twist that will be delumptious or disgusterous. Great for foodie families, budding chefs, or kids that simply like something a little bit foulsome.
But what if squid ink just isn’t your family’s thing? Then join Victoria for Crackle and Crunch on Saturday 13 December to make an edible Christmas cracker, or join in with her Baking Mash Up on Friday 2 January and Sunday 1 February to invent (and taste) some crazy cakes. Or if you can’t make Thursday 30 October, there’s another chance to Enter the Inventing Room on Saturday 31 January.
So who is the Museum’s new resident foodie? Victoria Glass is a foodie fanatic and exceptional baker who launched Victoria’s Cake Boutique in 2008. She is also a prolific food writer and published author who has written for many titles including Great British Chefs, Hello!, Woman and Home, The Huffington Post and Perfect Weddings, her fourth book will be published in March 2015.
