In the Kitchen With Laura Test Shots

I’ve been telling you about the new program that I’m debuting at Laura Days in Pepin this weekend. I’ve been working on getting the final touches pulled together. I have a couple of test shots to share with you. This is one of my great-grandmother’s aprons. I’m going to be graying my hair and accessorizing differently, but I think this dress will work.  I’ve been working on a different 1930s dress since my normal one is a little formal to be found in the kitchen.   The second shot shows some of the props I’m going to be bringing along for the program. That is a genuine oilcloth tablecloth and my grandmother’s egg scale.

    1. I’m going to have audience participants help make Ginger Water which is a recipe Ma made and a simple biscuit recipe. I’m not currently planning on including it in this version of the program, but I also have a vanity cake recipe from a relative and Ma’s recipe in the Cream City Cookbook in my files. I really think Laura got her gingerbread recipe from Ma because of the leavening. It was at least an old one.

  1. I looked again at your kitchen props and realize that I have nut grinder and jars with the wire clamp to hold the glass lid down. Ummm! 1930s probably came from my mother’s house. And oil cloth — I grew up with those tablecloths — more the checkered ones though. Also actually own some “flour sack” material that I use for card table covers. Ah, memories.
    Love Laura’s gingerbread — and I have lard to make up a batch.
