Cooking Up History: Evolution of Kitchen & Cookbooks Exhibit Opening Reception
November 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
No room in the house has seen as many changes in technologies and social trends as the American kitchen. From pioneer times to today, innovative technologies like updated stoves, refrigerators, and packaged goods have eased the labor involved in cooking.
The cookbook has changed alongside the kitchen. While some may look at a cookbook as just a list of ingredients, others see it as a snapshot of history. Cookbooks give us insight to what was in a typical kitchen during the time period it was written, including popular dishes and what types of goods were available.
Stop in to see the changing trends of kitchens and cookbooks at the Cooking Up History: Evolution of Kitchens and Cookbooks exhibit opening reception at the Old Courthouse Museum on Thursday, November 16th from 5-7 p.m. Admission is free
