Details

Cooking Up History showcases a guest chef and our resident food historian, Dr. Ashley Rose Young, preparing a recipe and talking about the history and traditions behind its ingredients, culinary techniques, and enjoyment. In 2019 we're focusing each month’s demonstration on a section of the museum’s exhibition FOOD: Transforming the American Table.

Each year the museum marks Julia Child’s August 15 birthday with a themed cooking demonstration. We will welcome guest chef Lynne Just of Sur La Table to explore a much-beloved section of the FOOD exhibition that houses Julia’s Cambridge, Massachusetts kitchen. We will highlight Julia and Paul’s shared love of food and Paul’s role in encouraging and supporting Julia as she pursued her culinary career. Chef Just will dive into the lively and supportive relationship between Julia and Paul, providing an intimate portrayal of their home life in America and abroad.
