Explore the reasons why food in the Georgian period really was FOOD TO DIE FOR! How did the villainous food and drinks merchants use chemistry and skullduggery to alter their goods, with water the deadliest of all these innocuous additives? How did the noble lords and ladies, terrified of poisons, unknowingly poison themselves? Scientific Sue needs many volunteers to help her investigate and demonstrate the science behind some of these killer practices showing how technology and innovation came to the rescue.
