History of America’s Kitchens Virtual Program
History of America’s Kitchens: From the Colonial Period to the Present
Monday, February 6
7:00 – 8:00 PM via Zoom
From the colonial period to the present, the kitchen has been a source of nourishment and comfort. The way Americans have lived with their kitchens has changed dramatically over the course of three centuries. 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 discuss the technological and social changes that have taken place in this room and suggest how these innovations have transformed kitchen work and changed women’s lives.
This event is in conjunction with the Rockport Public Library.
