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!

At the Kids’ Table with Sarah Lohman: Chinese Food, American Story

Square photo: 
Sat, 03/21/2015 - 14:00 to 16:00
Sat, March 21st, 2015 | 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Like it has for many immigrant groups, food created a pathway to acceptance for Chinese in America. During this program families will explore N-YHS’s groundbreaking exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion and will then cook some of the first foods that Chinese immigrants introduced to Americans. We’ll recreate the first popular Chinese take-out, chop suey, from a century old recipe, and make dumplings by hand- filling, folding, and cooking them to eat in class.
