Thursday Things: The New England Kitchen
The smell of cooking, one historian wrote could evoke a whole civilization. The New England Kitchen with its open hearth, iron pots, and cranes, was a place of creation and conviviality, of smells both pleasant and putrid. As cooking stoves replaced hearths in the 19th century, the term New England Kitchen came to mean a set of foods that came to define the American diet. Inspect cooking utensils in the Museum’s collection as cultural historian Shirley Wajda tells the story of this quintessential American space.
