Will C. Wood High School junior Alicia Bailey learned that cooking is hard – and even harder when limited to World War II rationing restrictions.
She learned what “folding dough” means, and can explain “creaming.”
Bailey and her four partners from the advanced placement history class presented the history of food preparation in the Solano County area, beginning with the natives who lived here first.
But the highlights were the wartime loaf, carrot cookies and World War II-era cake that the team prepared and shared with the audience Tuesday at the fifth annual Classroom Curator program at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum.
