Recipe Memories and Kitchen Stories

As the holidays approach, we often remember our families through food. Join us to share your food and recipe memories and exchange stories of cooking traditions. Learn the history and origin of some family favorites.

Our speakers are Eleanor Hanson, former Director of the Kraft Kitchens and Linda Smithson, former director of Pillsbury Consumer Services including the Pillsbury Bake-Off. They will share their memories of Test Kitchen and Bake-Off recipe history.

We encourage you to bring pictures, recipe books and cards, and other kitchen ephemera to share and show.
