The Copper Pot is based in The Shambles at Bewdley Museum. Walk inside and you will be visiting the 18th century. The shop filled with foods from the past, all created from the original recipes, allowing you to taste the past at home. Try an 18th century style hot chocolate, spiced with cardamon and long pepper, or go further back in time to try an Elizabethan stew with spices from the newly discovered spice islands. The merchant is often there in full Georgian costume, and will demonstrate and explain the foods and spices, as well as show how many of the dishes were prepared in the past. If you ask nicely he will often have something for you to try as well!You can also buy historic recipe books and cards, or try out some of the games that have played over the last few hundreds of years.
