What's your favorite food? Chances are it's something sweet. While we may not recall what vegetables were on our plates, desserts delight our senses. Desserts are windows into memories of delicious tastes, textures, and smells.

Desserts disappear fast but long after they vanish, their recipes reveal clues to changing ideas. This exhibit explores the history of dessert through the objects and recipes of the Pejepscot region of Maine.

This exhibit is based on one in the museum at the Pejepscot Historical Society in Brunswick.
