A Stirling Feast




As part of CastleFest, step into the busy world of Stirling Castle’s royal court and experience the smells, sights, sounds and colour of Renaissance life. You are cordially invited to join the court as they prepare to feast. Discover the etiquette of feasting at the royal table and marvel at the fine dishes as you learn how to cook some yourself. Let the feasting begin!

Join our pre- recorded livestream as Maister cook Thomas Marshall delves into the fascinating renaissance kitchen at Stirling Castle. Enjoy a tour of the kitchens, find out what the turnbrochie does and hear about some of the most expensive ingredients in the pantry.

Then Thomas and Peg will cook up some delectable delights, fit for Queen! Why not have a go yourself? Download the recipe in advance.

Finally, dinner is served! The feast is laid out in all its splendour! From pig trotter jelly and umble pie to marzipan Unicorn and sugar ships. We have it all!

You can also enjoy our range of online activities, including crafts and historic recipes to enjoy throughout the day.

The live stream will be available on Facebook and YouTube.
