About the Event

In Jane Austen’s time, the first course of medical treatment often came from the household book, a collection of family recipes addressing complaints ranging from colds to consumption. But Georgian home remedies were not equally effective, and many resulted in unintended consequences. Join author and food historian Julienne Gehrer for a look at the practice and paradox of home cures known to the Austens and their contemporaries.
