During the 125th Celebration of Henderson, the goal is to Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present and Explore the Future. Ethnic Food Demonstrations are being each month as a way to celebrate the food that is unique to the community of Henderson.

During April participants learned how to make Zwieback under the direction of Mary Ellen Pankratz and Jill Weisheit at Mary Ellen’s home.  The various steps needed to make the dough, kneading the dough after it had time to rise, pinching the balls of dough and learning ways to making sure the tops didn’t fall off were demonstrated during the class.  Each food participant was able to practice making two dozen zwieback and were able to take the zwieback they made home with them.
