Bread + Butter Workshop

By Food Historian Anna O'Donnell

A taste of history. Learn from our Culinary Historian Anna, how to make the most basic things we have in life: bread and butter. You can expect to get your hands dirty, to get really involved in the process. When you’ll do the butter making for example, you will work on the butter churn and you will wash the butter and you will rinse it and then you will use the buttermilk for making bread. It’s a communal effort and people will get involved within this beautiful workshop, everybody in the room.
