About this Event
Culinary Historians of Canada’s 5th annual Baking for the Victorian Christmas Table is going digital this year! This Christmas baking workshop features CHC’s star baker and historic cook, Sherry Murphy. She’ll be demonstrating recipes for traditional plum pudding and mincemeat tarts from Eliza Acton’s Modern Cookery for Private Families, a cookbook that was current during the Victorian period (1837–1901), all made over the open hearth in the historic kitchen at Montgomery’s Inn in Etobicoke, Ontario.
This virtual workshop will include a beautifully filmed recording of Sherry and her assistant Pat Currie demonstrating both recipes, along with an introduction to Montgomery’s Inn. A live question and answer period with Sherry will follow the video presentation. A booklet of 12 Victorian recipes will be available for participants to download and save. In addition, participants will have access to the workshop video for one month following the event.
