Tom Flint: Some Tudor-inspired tastes of the past

At the time of writing time travel is yet to be a known reality, although spend enough time on the internet and you will find “evidence” of it. For those who have a keen interest in the past, the only way to experience it first hand is in a re-enactment style capacity. I am not ashamed to admit having attended several medieval-themed events throughout my life, not to mention a life-long dream of learning to swordfight and don some armour.

Brighton and Hove On this Day by Dan Tester: Friday January 13 1871

By 1870, Brighton’s population had risen to 90,000. Just before 1860, the town council decided that all of the town’s wastewater should be drained into the sea as the current arrangement of filling cesspools and using the back of dwellings wasn’t ideal, or particularly kind on the nostrils.

We are regularly told that January is the most miserable month of the lot: 31 short days and long cold nights when very few of us have any cash and are full of self-loathing.

Warren Morgan: The evolution of Brighton and Hove

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the creation of Brighton and Hove City Council. 
In 1997 the new unitary authority was formed, taking over services previously run by Brighton Borough Council, Hove Borough Council and East Sussex County Council. It established a council equivalent in population size to Newcastle and Sunderland, and bigger than Plymouth or Southampton.

As years go 2016 was a fairly interesting one, and that is putting it lightly. I will spare you yet another list of negative events that occurred, as I am sure you are all well aware of these, and instead I shall spend some time looking forward. Firstly, I want to say that 2016 was a fantastic year for the food community of Brighton and Hove and therefore the city as a whole.

Vasilopita is not a Russian revolutionary, nor a cure for chapped lips, nor a repurposed horse-trailer selling feta filled pittas at festivals. Vasilopita is a Greek baked-good served on New Year’s Day. Yes, it’s so good they only want it once a year. Bit like figgy pudding. Or seeing your cousins.
