Have you ever wondered how our predecessors ingeniously repurposed leftover food without the luxury of modern preservation methods? They didn't simply stash remnants in a Tupperware container, destined to morph into unrecognizable (and let’s admit, sometimes terrifying) science experiments in the fridge. Instead, they embraced resourcefulness, ensuring that no morsel went to waste.
Join us for this month's captivating Foodways presentation, where we shine a spotlight on the intriguing history of leftovers, focusing on an unexpected culinary gem: French toast.
French toast, a timeless comfort food, has a storied past that stretches back to Ancient Rome under various names, one of which was "Pain Perdu" or wasted bread. Join us as we use the leftover sourdough bread from our recent cooking demonstration, all prepared on our wood-burning stove.
We open our doors at 10:00 am with the presentation kicking off at 10:30, lasting approximately 45 minutes, with ongoing cooking demonstrations on our charming wood-burning stove extending until 2:00 pm. Whether you're intrigued by the historical significance of leftovers or keen to explore the inner workings of our antique stove, we welcome you to join us for an informative and delightful experience.
Admission covers both the presentation and live demonstrations, making this a comprehensive exploration of culinary history that you won't want to miss.
