Museum of London - Treat your taste buds with 17th century gingerbread

Limited edition Fire! Fire! Gingerbread
We've teamed up with Albion to create a delicious gingerbread biscuit inspired by a 350 year old recipe from our museum collection.

Albion Shoreditch Head Baker Aurelien Beguyot studied the recipe which featured red wine, stale bread and rose water. Taking this as his inspiration, Aurelien created his own biscuit in the 17th century style, complete with reduced red wine, rose water and plenty of fiery ginger - he chose not to include the stale bread! Watch this video to find out more about the recipe.

Available now at Albion Bankside, Clerkenwell and Shoreditch for £1.30, this limited edition Fire! Fire! gingerbread marks 350 years since the Great Fire of London.
