Family Program
At the Kids’ Table with Sarah Lohman: How the Kitchen Has Changed
Saturday, April 25th, 2015 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
$16
(Members $10)

What does 18th-century Tupperware look like? How about a 19th-century toaster? In this program, you'll go on a family scavenger hunt in the New-York Historical Society to uncover the kitchens of the past. Then we'll cook together, making cinnamon toast like folks would have 200 years ago—we'll do everything from scratch, grinding sugar and churning butter by hand. You'll find out how much the kitchen has changed from 1815 to 2015!
