Museum De Waag: Deventer Honey Cake. A shelf life of six centuries.
21 January to 3 June 2018 | Museum De Waag
It is Deventer’s best kept secret: the recipe for Deventer Honey Cake. The city produced it’s first Honey Cake more than 600 years ago. And although it’s flavour stayed the same for hundreds of years, it’s development has continued. Over the centuries, Deventer honey Cake acquired fame not only as a highly valued trading commodity, but as an international delicacy as well. It became a Royal treat and a tasty culinary ingredient for chefs. More than anything else, Deventer Honey Cake became the city’s primary trade mark. In the year in which Deventer celebrates it’s 1250th anniversary, Museum De Waag honours the centuries-old Honey Cake during the exhibition ‘Deventer Honey Cake. A shelf life of six centuries’. The exhibition runs from 21 January up to and including 3 June 2018. Anyone visiting the exhibition on its opening day will receive a special honey cake, baked by Bussink especially for the occasion.
