The Flavel House Carriage House will host a free plum pudding demonstration at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 by local historian Rae Goforth.

Rae will show plum pudding "tricks of the trade" as well as her own recipe. There will be samples fresh from the oven.

According to Victorian author Satenig S. St. Marie, "Plum Pudding was believed to have magical powers including the ability to make peace. A husband and wife who had had a misunderstanding would be reconciled by the moral influence of the pudding while they were stirring it."

Admission is free, but reservations are required as space is limited. Call (503) 325-2203 for more information or to make a reservation.
