Sweet Revolution: The Scrumptious Saga of the 1940s

March 13 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm EDT

Join us as we explore the evolution of food trends that have defined the past 100 years, starting in the 1920s to today!

Wartime rationing was introduced in North America as a means to help alleviate food shortages, namely with staples such as sugar, coffee, tea, milk, butter and meat. This inevitably led way for home cooks having to get creative when it came to sweeter dishes. Pantry staples such as Peanut Butter, Molasses, Corn Syrup, Powdered and Condensed Milk became key ingredients and led way to many popular desserts of today.

Join us for a sweet journey through the era in which desserts where considered to be the cream of the crop. Experience the dawn of boxed cake mixes, the rise of baking as an international pastime, and the sweet sensation that became a nightly tradition on North American dinner tables.

Local Chef Owner Julia Gindra, of Dessert First, will delight our taste buds with a delectable celebration of 1940s-inspired desserts. Sommelier Bernard Joseph Lemoyne of Atelier Restaurant has whipped up the perfect pairing of fortified and sweet wines to compliment this dessert forward dinner.

This unique collaboration between Bernard and Chef Julia promises an evening of culinary magic that harkens back to the golden age of desserts!
