American Kitchens | February 16

America's Kitchens
2 p.m. Sunday, Feburary 16, 2014
Dorchester Historical Society

From the colonial period to the present, the kitchen has been a source of nourishment and comfort. As the place where parents nurture children and families gather at breakfast and dinner, share chores, and discuss the world outside, the kitchen gives meaning to family life. Historic New England curator Nancy Carlisle will discuss how the American kitchen has evolved from the seventeenth-century to the present. Drawing on her book America's Kitchens, co-authored with Melinda Narardinov, Ms. Carlisle will tell the story of the nation's kitchens from New England hearths, to Victorian kitchens isolated at the back of the house, to open plan kitchens of 1950s suburbs.

There is no Chocolate Cook-off, as at the last few February programs, but here will most definitely be chocolate refreshments.

Dorchester Historical Society, 195 Boston Street, Dorchester
