Resurrection Rolls and the Pleasures of Metaphorical Recipes
A discussion of food that is good to think, and of recipes that aim to enlighten, engage and entertain. Rebecca Earle, Chair of History at the University of Warwick, will introduce us to the recent phenomenon of ‘Resurrection Rolls’ and touch on other metaphorical recipes.
