In active historic kitchens you can see, smell, and taste food history! They are at the heart of many Canadian museums, where CHC members often work or volunteer as cooks. Here are some of our favourites. If you know of other historic kitchens in Canada, please send information about them to culinaryhistorians@uoguelph.ca.
