Thanksgiving Gingerbread-Baking Workshop

Posted by Barbara Peck on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 3:00 PM

Join us at Westport Museum for History and Culture on Wed., Nov. 13, from 7 to 9 pm. Our Executive Director, Ramin Ganeshram, a trained chef, food historian and award-winning cookbook author will talk about the history of gingerbread.  You will make your own special gingerbread mix to take home and bake or give as a gift! 


Nothing quite heralds the holiday season like the delightful smell of gingerbread baking in the oven. First brought to the New World by English colonists, gingerbread recipes exist in the first American cookbook by Amelia Simmons, in Martha Washington’s Book of Cookery and from Mary Ball Washington’s (George’s mom). In the 19th century, American poet Emily Dickinson was famous throughout her town for her Gingerbread.  


$40 per person. Reservations are required; register online at or call (203) 222-1424 x5. Refreshments will be served. Class fee includes all materials.
