Program Description

Event Details

Wini Moranville, author of The Little Women Cookbook: Tempting Recipes from the March Sisters and Their Friends and Family, discusses the importance of food in the novel Little Women as well as 19th century America. Food lovingly cooked and happily shared weaves in and out of Louisa May Alcott's masterpiece, from Amy's "pickled limes" fiasco to Jo's ill-fated dinner party and Meg's currant jelly-making disaster. Ms. Moranville will present recipes and wisdom from some of the many historic cookbooks she researched, and tell us how she adapted the cooking of yesteryear to the cooking of today. A Q&A and book-signing will follow. Tea and snacks provided.
