At the Kids’ Table with Sarah Lohman: How the Kitchen Has Changed

Sat, 02/06/2016 - 14:00 to 16:00
Sat, February 6th, 2016 | 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

What does a 19th-century toaster look like? How about a piece of 18th-century Tupperware? In this program, families go on a scavenger hunt in the New-York Historical Society to discover every-day objects found in kitchens of the past. After, they'll cook together, preparing cinnamon toast as folks would have made 200 years ago—families will have the opportunity to prepare everything from scratch, grinding cinnamon, nipping sugar, and even churning butter by hand. See just how much the kitchen has changed from 1815 to 2015!

At the Kids’ Table with Sarah Lohman: Food and Art

Sat, 01/09/2016 - 14:00 to 16:00
Sat, January 9th, 2016 | 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Food has appeared in art for centuries, and food that is prepared and presented artistically is all the rage today. In this program, participants will visit the galleries to see how food and art collided during the 19th and 20th centuries. Then our group will move to the classrooms to experiment with molecular gastronomy, a new and highly artistic way of approaching food. Want to learn how to make carrot “caviar” and gelified noodles? Well you will!

At the Kids’ Table with Sarah Lohman: Cornelia’s Holiday Kitchen

Sat, 12/12/2015 - 14:00 to 16:00
Sat, December 12th, 2015 | 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

By the early 1600s, Dutch colonists’ tasty confections had become a New Amsterdam holiday tradition. Even when the city was renamed New York, these recipes lived on. Come learn how an 18th-century Dutch girl named Cornelia van Varick cooked classic New Year dishes. Using tools and ingredients common to her kitchen, including sugar cones and nippers, Dutch ovens, as well as mortars and pestles, we’ll make two delicious desserts. Participants will prepare orange caraway cookies and fried doughnuts. Don’t worry—there will be plenty to take home and share!
