The Copper Pot

The Copper Pot is all about food from history, bringing recipes to life so that you can enjoy a real taste of the past, at home. We specialise in recreating authentic recipes from historical records that range in date from Roman times through to the Victorian era.

We currently produce a variety of products, such as an Elizabethan stew mix, spice mixes for wines from the kitchens of King Richard II, a very early medieval Icelandic mustard, a 17th century Spanish hot chocolate and another from 18th century England, the earliest English curry recipe, refreshing cordials and many other delicious treats.

Come and try our 18th-century spiced hot chocolate, or stock up on historically inspired chocolates.
