New Exhibit, Food for Thought,
Tuesday, February 3rd Open Regular Hours
Learn about food and cooking during Colonial American in the Museum's tasty new exhibit Food for Thought. Open February 2009 - January 2010. Regular Admission.
No matter who you are or what time period it is, everyone enjoys food, including the people of Colonial America. Because of the lack of the many kitchen conveniences of today, food preparing and cooking required much time, great skill and lots of elbow grease in Colonial America. With the many ready-made products available to us, it is easy to forget that in Early America, every aspect of a meal had to be made from scratch, from bread to beer.
The Museum's newest exhibit, Food for Thought, opening February 3rd will serve visitors a tasty experience of Colonial proportions. Discover what a typical Early American meal consisted of and how it was made. Learn about the different foods they ate, and imagine yourself trying to prepare three different meals using the same techniques and recipes from Early America. Visitors will have the opportunity to compare the kitchen utensils used back then to those of today.
Food For Thought will remain open to the public for the year 2009 and will offer visitors many unique and interesting programs throughout its duration. This is one exhibit you will want to sink your teeth into!
The Museum of Early Trades & Crafts is located at 9 Main Street in the heart of downtown Madison, just two blocks from the Madison train station. For information, please call 973-377-2982 x10 or visit our website at www.metc.org.
