Free public talk at Knowle Village Hall, all welcome, ‘bring a friend’!
Monday 16 September 2019

Kath Reynolds is keen on reminiscence and, as a former librarian, has an eye for detail. She has spent a great many years of collecting stories, memories and musings and her talks reflect this.

For her hour in the Village Hall next Monday, she will concentrate on food memories. The nation’s diet has changed markedly over our lifetimes, firstly with the availability of the refrigerator and the freezer, then with the advent of the ready meal and, of course, with the eventual arrival of almost unheard of modern favourites such Pad Thai and Fajitas.

Kath, though, will be turning her back on modern dishes and winding back the clock through the decades to remind us of brands we loved, and a few we might have hated. As she reviews the impact of early convenience food, she will feature some that are long lost and some that still limp along with vastly diminished sales, as well as once familiar packaging from the corner stores of yesteryear.

From Nesquik to Angel Delight to Chianti (but always in a basket) Kath will rekindle your memories of shopping and cooking half a century past.

All welcome, as ever at our talks, at 8pm on Monday 16th.
