About this event

Explore cookbooks through time with this interactive Bring & Share workshop. 

Hosted by the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery and LUU Global Community, in this event you will discover cookbooks and traditional British recipes dating back to as early as the 15th Century. 

After a short introduction to the cookery collection from Leeds University library's Special Collections you are invited to bring your own cookbook or recipe to share with the group in our Bring & Share workshop. 

This event is held in the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery which is located in the Parkinson Building, on the University of Leeds campus. 

Please note: You cannot bring food and drink into the gallery.
