Past to Apron, launched in 2020, presents a summer program in June and a holiday themed conference in December. 

The program is delivered entirely online, offering an on demand experience where talks may be viewed at the moment they are aired, or on replay during the conference period.  Past to Apron is geared to the general interest level - from the cooking and baking enthusiast, to the history and food lover, and for the culturally curious.  With the flexibility to view the program from the comfort of one's own surroundings - and whether from multiple device types - it's an ideal way to enjoy a 'taste' of history.

Each program presents a series of talks on various regions and timeframes and are presented by a range of speakers - such as authors, historians, chefs, curators, museum founders. Past programs have highlighted the oldest known handwritten Irish recipe (situated in a castle); the history of community cookbooks, using special effects on movie sets to recreate historic timeframes, demonstrations, Shakespeare inspired recipes, hearth cooking in a 17th century farmhouse and more.
