Description: How do you cook a meal with limited ingredients? In this workshop, kids will join in for this wartime challenge and create delicious meals using ingredients and creative substitutions from a typical Victory Garden. During WWII families were encouraged to grown their own food, to free up more of the food supply for the troops. At the Kids’ Table is an ongoing series that uses hands-on ingredient exploration and cooking as a window into history. Families spend time in galleries and the studio looking, tasting, smelling, talking, and learning together. RSVP required.
