SWEET TREATS: Desserts & Delicacies from the Garden State

Presented by Hilary May, Curator of Education at the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts
Tuesday October 6 @ 1:30 PM via Zoom
 
 

Join METC educator, Hilary May, in exploring a variety of “sweet” culinary traditions of the 18th and 19th centuries, from traditional baked goods to less familiar delicacies such as calves-feet jelly cake.  We will discuss how the treats we enjoy have changed, both in process and ingredients, and consider how the dessert landscape has changed over the last 200 years.  Finally, we will highlight a few 19th century New Jersey “sweet treat” makers, including Ocean Grove’s Mrs. Wagner and Day's Ice Cream.
