Good day, well met!
I'm Geanina, the Merry Tudor.
I am a stillroom historian, forager and geography teacher based in London.
I'm fascinated with the stillrooms of the 16th and 17th century, where the scents of roses, herbs and spices filled the air and the maids and gentlewomen used skills and recipes passed on from one generation to the next.
In the stillroom, medicines were prepared for the household, herbs were dried, cosmetics concocted, aromatic waters were distilled and foods were preserved.
Join me on my journey through the wonderfully fragrant Tudor stillrooms and gardens!
