Dust off your copies of What Shall We Have for Dinner? by Lady Clutterbuck and Mrs. Beeton’s Book of Household Management and join us for three interactive sessions exploring Victorian kitchens and cocktails. Dickens Project alumna Liz Pollock explores food and drink preparation in the Victorian kitchen on November 9th. In subsequent lessons, she will demonstrate how to make delicious beverages from the Victorian era.
Liz Pollock first came to Santa Cruz in 1975 to visit some friends at the UC Santa Cruz campus for the “Valentine’s Day Waltz” at Cowell College. As soon as she could, she transferred from Cal State LA to UCSC and majored in comparative literature. She met her husband at Adolph’s Italian Family Restaurant, where she bartended for five years. Liz has owned and operated the Cook’s Bookcase since 2007 and lives with her family in a restored 1914 California Craftsman bungalow in beautiful Santa Cruz.
