Masters of Social Gastronomy: Thanksgiving PIES!!!!

Each month, Masters of Social Gastronomy takes on a curious food topic and breaks down the history and science behind it. This month, pop in for some Thanksgiving PIE inspiration!

Think making an apple pie is simple? Not so fast! A trip to the grocery store yields a thousand and one varieties of apples, all bearing well-marketed and uninformative monikers: Gala, Northern Spy, Empire, Honeycrisp, Granny Smith. Learn the rhyme and reason behind the names and the categories, along with the history and science that got turned us into a nation of Red Delicious.

Fall also brings everyone’s favorite time of year: pumpkin spice season! We’ll discover how this New World gourd combined with English pie ingenuity to become the classic Thanksgiving dish. Along the way, we’ll venture into meat pies, coffins, and the history of competitive eating.

Bonus: Join us onstage for a pie eating contest, with a GRAND PRIZE!

Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.

Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
