Cooking Up History showcases a guest chef and our resident food historian, Dr. Ashley Rose Young, preparing a recipe and talking about the history and traditions behind its ingredients, culinary techniques, and enjoyment. In 2019 we're focusing each month’s demonstration on a section of the museum’s exhibition FOOD: Transforming the American Table.

Chef Lynne Just of Sur La Table will help us celebrate the winter holidays by making Julia Child’s croquembouche. This traditional French dessert is made by building a conical tower of profiteroles and coating it in delicate layers of caramelized sugar. Although a somewhat intimidating dessert by virtue of its height alone, Julia’s recipe breaks down its preparation into manageable steps. We are delighted to share her technique for this whimsical dish with museum visitors. Allons-y!
