Domestic Revolution: Preserving the Family Meal

If you are in the Chicago area or live in Evanston, this is a great opportunity to learn about The Community Kitchen from the perspective of an Evanston historian. I can not make the event, as I live out of state, but I am looking forward to the reaction and feedback from the event. The Evanston History Center is located in the beautiful Dawes House. Free wine and food at Whole Foods, Evanston South location before the event at 6:30 pm.
My great-grandmother was one of the co-founders and later became the sole propietor of The Community Kitchen. I am working on a historic food memoir about The Community Kitchen, which you can view samples and information about it on my blog:
I hope you can make it!

  1. Hi Meg. I love those old kitchens!
    Got your recent message. I think if I have to write proper letters again on proper paper you may only hear from me once a year! Having said that I think we’ve lost something with the birth of the email. It used to be a moment of pleasure and expectation to hold the letter of a friend or family in one’s hand and wonder what news was inside. These days I seem to always be short of time, and email has become just too convenient.
    Hoping things are good with you and 2013 is being kind.
    J xx
