Just Desserts

Hilde Binford (left), assistant professor of music history, spent Sunday afternoon, November 14, instructing the members of the Music Alliance in period desserts at Daddy Groman’s Moravian Bake Shop, adjacent to Technicolor Day Spa in Bethlehem. (Richard Groman ’78 owns both.)

Among her creations were “white leech,” which is jellied milk cubes decorated with edible gold paint, and “cranberry flummery,” which starts with ground rice, boiled into pudding and mixed with sugar and fruit.

The menu also included brandied oranges with almond cream and a genuine Williamsburg wassail. There also were many kinds of “pressed” cookies (made with molds) and and quite a lot of marzipan (almost paste).

The event raised $480 in support of Music Department projects.
