Cooking and dining with friends and family during the Holiday Season that begins with Thanksgiving and ends with New Year’s Eve is a much loved Connecticut tradition. Many nonprofit organizations, historic house museums and nature centers host holiday art and craft festivals in addition to workshops on wreath making and ornament creation. The Westport Historical Society has taken the holiday festivities one step further by offering something perfect for food lovers and those that also love to learn about the history of food.
So, this year to get in a holiday state of mind, head to the Westport Historical Society to learn about the dessert says holidays – Plum Pudding! On December 4, 2019 from 7 pm – 9 pm join the Executive Director, Ramin Ganeshram, a trained chef, food historian and award-winning cookbook author to talk about the history of plum pudding and to make your own special mix of brandy-soaked fruit and pudding mix to take home and bake or give as a gift!
This delectably moist, dessert, heady with the flavor of brandy, is a Victorian tradition that recalls the charming holidays of yore and is sure to be a modern-day treat.
