‘Dairy and Eggs’ exhibit to open with reception
Kathleen Hill has collected culinary tools for decades
The Sonoma League of Historic preservation continues its series of exhibitions of Kathleen Hill’s Culinary Collection with “Dairy and Eggs,” opening on Friday, Sept. 14, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Maysonnave House.
Hill’s collection includes more than 1,000 antique kitchen utensils accumulated for their beauty and functions over decades.
The collection began in her mother’s kitchen, but was eventually passed down and continues to thrive as she still searches for the cooking devices of yesteryear.
The “Dairy and Eggs” utensil exhibit offers everything from old Romberg Dairy bottles to egg beaters, poachers and all sorts of equipment in between.
It will be on display at the Maysonnave House.
Hill is the food and wine editor of The Sonoma Index-Tribune and SONOMA magazine. Having studied at the Cordon Bleu and Sorbonne in Paris, she is a member of Les Dames d'Escoffier, Culinary Historians of New York, La Chaine des Rotisseurs, Southern California Culinary Historians and Slow Food Sonoma Valley.
The exhibition of Kathleen Hill’s Culinary Collection is curated by Alex Mitchell and Barbara White Perry, and will change periodically through 2012.
The Maysonnave House is located at 291 First St. E. It is open Fridays and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.
