Why Did Women Stop Baking Bread at Home and Why Should We Care?

- Wednesday 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
For 14,000 years most bread was baked at home primarily by women. Between 1890 and 1930 in the US, a big shift occurred and by 1930, 90% of bread was bought in a store. This talk will explore the role of changing flours, ovens, leavens, as well as the rise of sandwiches in this profound transition.
Maria Trumpler is a local historian and a board member at the Dudley Farm Museum.
