A taste of apples through time, with three historical recipes tried, tested and adapted for the contemporary kitchen by food historian Tasha Marks.

The Museum of Cider in Hereford has curated an exhibition of apples and pears in honour of Gillian Bulmer (1935-2021). Compiled with the help of fruit growers and cider makers in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire, and Wales, the exhibition features over 360 plates of fruit.

In poetry and literature the apple is often a microcosm of our own existence – often mapping the seasons, the taste of youth, the ripening of age.
