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 2020, we will be highlighting objects and stories about women.

New York Times food writer Melissa Clark has helped countless cooks overcome their fear of the Instant Pot through her video series and popular book Dinner in an Instant. Join her as we examine key kitchen technologies and culinary techniques that have made the home cook’s life easier, and hopefully, stress free. Clark will share a recipe for poule au pot pie from her new cookbook, Dinner in French, that uses the Instant Pot to make this French-inspired dish both accessible and fun. 

After the demonstration, she will sign copies of her cookbooks, including her newest one, Dinner in French. Copies of books will be available for purchase on site.

Members of the food history team will direct guests to the FOOD exhibition to see Clark’s Instant Pot, which she used for testing recipes before donating it to the museum in 2018.
