The History of Yum: Gingerbread

When: Sun., Dec. 18, 2 p.m. 2016

In the 15th century, Swedish nuns used gingerbread to ease indigestion, much like drinking ginger tea to ease a stomach ache. Join food historian and SFCC and EWU professor Monica Stenzel for a class on the history of gingerbread and learn more tidbits like this one, complete with cookies to decorate (and consume) from Madeleine’s Café & Patisserie. Participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and MAC members who sign up can get a 10 percent discount.
