Valentine Chocolate-Making for Kids

Thursday, February 11  
3:00-4:00


This very popular chocolate-making workshop for kids in grades K-8 will be held on Thursday, February 11 from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. While our colonial forefathers had to make do with a rather gritty version of our beloved hot chocolate, and no chocolate candies (they were not common until the mid-1800's), program participants will make something extra nice for their Valentine - delicious, professional-looking chocolates and an origami-style box to put them in!

Registration is required.
S
pace is limited.

Please register by email: info@wiltonhistorical.org or call (203) 762-7257


Materials fee: $5.00 per members’ child, $10 for non-members’ child


Please note: This is not a drop-off program.


Sweet for Sweethearts Chocolate-Making for Adults

Wine and chocolate is a delightful combination. Those who gather at the Wilton Historical Society on Thursday, February 11 will have an opportunity to try their hand at making molded chocolates for Valentine’s Day: the evening will be even more enjoyable as wine and other beverages will be served.

Beautiful, professional-looking molded chocolates will be made in approximately one hour, from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. The artisanal chocolate provided is very high quality and worthy of being savored by discerning sweethearts, and will make a lovely gift for that special someone. A variety of mold shapes, including hearts and flowers, will be used.


Registration is required and space is limited. Please register by email: info@wiltonhistorical.org or call (203) 762-7257 to reserve your place.

Colonial Cookery and Customs for Kids
A special new series on Saturdays!

January 30- Bannock Cakes
February 27 - Pease Porridge
March 19 - Aspic
April 30th - TBA

11:00-12:30pm


Beginning on Saturday, January 30, youth in grades 4 – 8 can attend a Colonial Cookery and Customs for Kids workshop at the Wilton Historical Society. On the last Saturday of each month, a class will gather to learn and follow a Colonial-era “reciept” (recipe) from the Connecticut region. While the food cooks, they will also hear about Colonial manners, morals, and way of life.


The workshops will feature relatively simple dishes made with local, seasonal ingredients. The recipes used will be adapted for modern kitchens. This is done for safety reasons, and also so that the attendees can recreate their meals at home. All participants will sample their own cooking and take home recipe cards – as well as any leftovers! The children will learn how a Colonial kitchen would have operated, in order to appreciate the modern conveniences we take for granted.


Members: $15; Non-members $25. Space is limited for this program.
