Rubens’ Secret

A cocktail foraged in Rubens' garden

The Food Archaeologist went foraging in Rubens' 17th-century city garden and brought along mixologist Hannah Van Ongevalle. Together, they created Rubens' secret, a cocktail/mocktail that blurs the boundaries of time and invites us to the master's garden party.
