Now We're Cookin'

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 01:00 PM
Bolton Hall Museum in Tujunga, CA

Now through October 2016!

In the olden days, cooking was done with simple devices and a lot of love. We've pulled out all the vintage kitchen items and cookbooks from our archives, along with many other items on-loan from community members. We even have a display of reamers.

Remember all the happy days in your granny's kitchen? Children may marvel when they see how people used to get by with much less technology. Come and reminisce about cooking in the good old days.

Admission is free, but a donation of $2 per person is suggested.

For more information, e-mail littlelanders@verizon.net or call 818-352-3420. For more events, check out their website.
