Step back more than one hundred years into Margaret Conant’s kitchen, a room that would have been the heart of the historic Conant house, now owned by the Falmouth Historical Society located on Falmouth’s Village Green. In the 1920s, Margaret and her husband William ran a boarding house on the premises; this was a perfect fit for Margaret because she was a graduate of the legendary Boston Cooking School (famous for Fannie Merritt Farmer who was a fellow classmate). Margaret used her culinary expertise to serve as a chef in dining establishments in Woods Hole and as a personal chef to private families. This presentation includes the history of the founding of the Boston Cooking School, an exploration of many foods Margaret made for her family, and demystifies the components and flow of high-society dinners Margaret would have been expected to produce for her clients.
