LOCATION

Audley End House and Gardens 

SUITABLE FOR

Everyone

Mrs Crocombe presents her rhubarb and beef soup.

Explore the world below stairs and get a taste of Victorian life as costumed characters take you back to Audley End in 1881. Meet the cook Mrs Crocombe and her kitchen maids preparing a meal for the Braybrooke family, bump into the stable-hand Mr Baker grooming the horses, and meet housekeeper Mrs Warwick (if she's not too busy) organising the house for the day.

This month Mrs Crocombe and her kitchen maids are preparing for a busy winter season. Taking advantage of the seasonal vegetables and fruit the kitchen maids are peeling, coring and chopping for soups and preserves.

The staff will be at Audley End every weekend this month: Sat 1 & Sun 2 Sep, Sat 8 & Sun 9 Sep, Sat 15 & Sun 16 Sep, Sat 22 & Sun 23 Sep.

Try out the recipes for yourself and watch Mrs Crocombe create her favourite dishes over on our YouTube series The Victorian Way.
