Testing the Sensory Artworks, Mrs Beetons Cookbook

Kate installed Mrs Beetons Cookbook in the kitchen. The book has herbs and spices inserted into the book which had been glued into solid sections.
Comments from the Access To Heritage Group recorded by Carolyn:-
We gained some useful insights into positioning objects – put them in places where there are less ‘non touch’ items, so as not to confuse people! .. the book in the kitchen may go on a side table.
The group from the Blind School hadn’t been in the kitchen before so they were a little distracted by all the things to take in. They did use the book with help and smelt each spice or herb. Mark said “it smelled like sweet and sour chicken”. Daniel said “the vanilla pod smelt like bakewell tart which is his favourite pudding.”
