Mrs Crocombe prepares a festive feast in the Audley End kitchen

Over the seasonal period the historic kitchen will be a flurry of activity as the kitchen staff prepare bakes, treats and dishes for the Christmas feast at Audley End House. Meet the staff and inhale the spices and smells from the seasonal dishes which would have once ladened the Braybrooke's Christmas table.

Watch the staff prepare well-known seasonal staples including mince pie, christmas pudding and gingerbread biscuits, or be inspired by more unusual Victorian recipes such as Nesselrode Pudding and Charlotte Russe.

You can watch the Audley End staff busy at work on the following days:

  • Sat 25 - Sun 26 November
  • Sat 2 - Sun 3 December
  • Sat 9 - Sun 10 Dec
  • Sat 16 - Sun 17 Dec
  • Sat 23 Dec
