Take a step back in time with our guest Maria Trumpler, a Senior Lecturer at Yale in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Her interests include gender and science, feminist critiques of science, scientific studies of sexuality, and food studies. She has taught at Yale, Middlebury, and Harvard, and currently teaches a lecture course on "Women, Food and Culture" and a first-year seminar on "History of Sexuality." She also serves as Director of Yale's Office of LGBTQ Resources.

Bread has been central to the American diet in various forms since before colonial times.On her visit to BAKE!, she'll demonstrate a few historical varieties of breads, from before 1850, while discussing their economic and cultural context and what they tell us about the lives of the women who baked them,while you simply sit back and take it all in. We'll end class sampling these tastes of the past.

You’ll leave BAKE! with recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, happy taste buds,and great coupons.
