Farm to Table Saturdays

Nothing like a farmhouse kitchen to feel at home on a Saturday! Join us for our new cooking series, “Farm to Table Saturdays,” highlighting the recipes and ingredients common in a 1920s Shawnee kitchen. Every month we’ll feature a new food theme and feature the mix of the modern products, cultural traditions, and local agriculture that influenced every Kansas City family’s dinner table 100 years ago.

The program is included with general admission and free to Friends of Shawnee Town members. Guests are welcome to chat with our cooks and sample their efforts from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
