Holiday Colonial Cooking

Join us for an illuminating discussion of recipes and historical customs that highlighted holiday entertaining in Colonial America.  Four Colonial recipes, including Twelfth Night Cake and Pastilles, will be presented with samples for tasting, with one offered for participants to prepare during the program.  In addition, informational handouts will be given and a display of reproduction cooking tools will complement the program.


Taught by:  Louise Miller, Education Director at Lincoln County Historical Association.  Louiseā€™s experience with historical recipes and hearth cooking methods has developed through her work at Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts, the Fort at No. 4 Living History Museum in New Hampshire, and her years as editor and publisher of the periodical The Pine Tree Shilling.
