A SPECIAL travelling exhibition looking at East Anglian recipes, cooking and farming will be put on display in Harwich.

The historic Christopher Jones House will be hosting the Food Stories exhibition for two days next week.

The travelling exhibition from the Museum of East Anglian Life celebrates East Anglian recipes, cooking, farming techniques and dialect words that have been passed down through generations.

Andy Schooler, from the Harwich Society, said: “The centrepiece of the exhibition is a farm kitchen table featuring local recipes, photos, sound recordings and objects from the museum’s collection.

“The University of Leeds is also involved, sharing historic sound recordings and also providing an opportunity for visitors to write down or record their own local dialect words.

“Visitors are also encouraged to share their favourite or family recipes and bring along copies to add to the ever-growing display.”

The exhibition is free and takes place at the Christopher Jones House at 21 Kings Head Street, Harwich, on Monday and Tuesday, June 27 and 28, from 10am to 4pm.

Christopher Jones, who was captain of the Mayflower Ship as it took the pilgrims to America in 1620, lived with his mother Sybil and father at the property.
