WILTON, Conn. — The Colonial Cookery and Customs for Kids workshop is back this month to teach children how to make asparagus forced in French rolls.
Each month, the Wilton Historical Society teaches students in grades 4-8 about a Colonial recipe used in the Connecticut region.
As the food cooks, the students hear about Colonial manners, morals and way of life.
This month's event will take place on Saturday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road, Wilton.
The workshops utilize local, seasonal ingredients to make simple recipes that have been adapted for modern kitchens, such as bannock cakes and pease porridge, among others.
All students will take home recipe cards and leftovers and also learn firsthand how a Colonial kitchen operated without modern technology.
Admission is $15 for Wilton Historical Society members and $25 for non-members.
Space is limited and registration is required.
