01/07/2014 - The Moravian cookie – those thin, crisp ginger or sugar cookies that grace holiday tables around the world this time of year – has likely gone farther than any Moravian settler ever imagined. These cookies were once treats baked only by Moravians, a small group of pre-Reformation Protestants who settled in North Carolina in the mid-1700s after escaping religious persecution in what is now the Czech Republic. They built the town of Salem, which merged with Winston in 1913.
12/16/2013 - The Moravians know how to do holidays. Their traditions especially shine at Christmas: sugar cake, wafer-thin spiced cookies, music and candlelight services.
12/13/2013 - While delicious any time of year, a Moravian Sugar Cake from North Carolina's historic Old Salem in Winston-Salem somehow tastes even better during the Holidays. That's especially true if you are sampling a traditional sugar cake from Old Salem's Winkler Bakery. But the modernized version we share here from The Old Salem Museums & Gardens Cookbook allows home cooks to recreate what the Moravians were baking in their kitchens in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. As for the story behind the name: The Moravians are devout followers of a mainstream protestant religion who settled in the Winston-Salem area more than 250 years ago.
