Event Types :
Join Winter Park Library archivist Rachel Simmons to learn the history of teatime.

You are cordially invited to step back in time to have tea with us! Join us to hear the history of teatime, the delicate etiquette of this time-honored tradition, and nutritional facts about modern day teatime.

This spring, history comes alive in the Center for Health & Wellbeing Nutrition Theatre under the guidance of Rachel Simmons, the archivist at the Winter Park Library. Rachel will teach you how to make Cucumber Sandwiches, “Faux” Clotted Cream and Flaky Scones.

In this program, you’ll not only learn about the history of tea parties, Rachel will share some modern lessons in food regulation, revealing why some brands of clotted cream aren’t allowed to be sold in the U.S. As Rachel bakes and prepares your teatime treats, this natural storyteller will fascinate you with stories of our culinary past.

You have two ways to attend this program: for just $15, you can book your seat in the Nutrition Theatre, where you’ll get to sample Rachel’s Mother’s Day Tea menu, or register for our free online webinar and watch the program live or later on-demand.

This program is presented by Rachel Simmons and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
