Coming Up at the Library: Desserts by Decade – The Fabulous 1950s!

When: Monday December 16, 2019: 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Where: Westgate Branch: West Side Room

Description

The 1950s brought us the Mickey Mouse Club, Elvis Presley, and Mr. Potato Head. The cool cats liked Ike, hula hooped around the yard, and saw the first movie in 3D. And then there was the food, daddy-o! From Jello to chiffon cakes to Baked Alaskas, there was food for everyone from the flutter bums to the wet rags.

Learn about some hep recipes from the 1950s with Lakehouse owner/baker Keegan Rodgers and hear about national and local history from historian/writer Patti Smith. Get your rag tops out of the garage and burn rubber to get there early–this event is sure to be full of hip folks!

This event is in partnership with The Lakehouse Bakery
