The Historical Society of Cheshire County is hosting another Pop Up Museum, and this time it will double as a potluck luncheon. The theme is “Family Recipes from the Old Country.”
The event is Saturday, Sept. 2, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at its Main Street home. In lieu of an admission, the historical society requests that members of the public prepare a favorite dish using a recipe that has been passed down in their family through the generations.
Perhaps, for example, your family makes an excellent tourtiere (French meat pie), a scrumptious pannukakku (Finnish pancake), the perfect ravioli (Italian dumpling), or the most flavorful batch of kheer (Indian rice pudding).
Recipes can be breakfast, lunch, appetizer or dessert items.
The event aims to bring community members together to share family stories and swap recipes. The historical society is also seeking donations of family recipes for its forthcoming recipe booklet.
The publication will highlight the mosaic of cultures that make up Cheshire County today. To RSVP for the potluck, visit hsccnh.org, or contact the Historical Society of Cheshire County at 352.1895 or [email protected]
The historical society has been collecting, preserving and communicating the history of Cheshire County for 90 years.
