Thank you very much to best-selling author and historian Claire Ridgway for kindly inviting me to write a guest blog post for her esteemed website The Anne Boleyn Files. I have been reading Claire’s work for more than a decade, so it is truly an honour!
Sample from the article:
“One Tudor tidbit, which I always wanted to incorporate, was the delicious tale of Elizabeth I receiving a marchpane chessboard. Such glorious Tudor imagery! Marchpane is basically ground almonds, sugar and rose water and also something my kids would likely spit into their napkins before fixing me with looks of betrayal. “Why did you let me eat this?” So perfume-flavoured sweets were out – although the book does include a toned-down recipe for marchpane-inspired cookies, which is milder than the original and more pleasing to sensitive taste buds.”
I hope you will enjoy the article!
