Foodways Fridays showcase typical cooking techniques, ingredients, and food culture of the past! Each Friday from 10am to 12pm, historic sites at Living History Farms will explore a differing food theme through demonstrations and displays. Sites and theme topics vary from week to week June 9 through August 25. Food trivia and recipes will be available to take home!
Thank you to Hy-Vee for their support of our Foodways Fridays program.
