1930s Tasting History

Ellie Presents 1930s Cooking

Ellie Presents 1930s Cooking

It is the Depression in America. The stock market has crashed, Roosevelt is trying to repair the country and thousands of Americans are changing the way they eat. Slide9Many rural folk are leaving for the cities and learning to cook on hotplates in rented rooms. A meal in a diner might have only cost a few cents but many didn’t have that so they made do with what they could cook themselves.

Still and all, many people who lived through that time have fond memories of the tastes and smells of that era. This presentation is especially popular with those for whom these recipes are not a first taste.
