According to the organizers:
“Did you inherit grandma’s recipe book, but can’t understand her notes? Are you interested in cooking with historic cookbooks, but the recipes make no sense? In this class, you’ll learn techniques for interpreting these tricky vintage and historic recipes.
We’ll unveil tricks to modernize these recipes for today’s kitchen: how to translate proportions, flesh out directions, find comparable ingredients and most importantly, how to pull inspiration from these historic and family recipes to create unique contemporary dishes. We’ll also cover modern recipe formatting and tips.
Students are invited to bring in their own vintage cookbooks and their family’s handwritten recipe cards for a personal consultation.”
