Sad Irons, Sifters & Spiders: 100 Years in Northwest Kitchens

A collaborative project between the Portland Culinary Alliance and the Oregon Historical Society, this 4,000-square-foot exhibit belied the adage "too many cooks spoil the broth." Instead, the "cooks" produced three complete period kitchens from the 1890s to the present, a special section devoted to cooking on the go, and a video featuring period advertising and homemaker programs. Additional vignettes included food preservation, housekeeping, gadgets, laundry and electricity .
