Join us for a cozy winter evening of authentic 18th century food tastings and a lecture on the history of early American cookery!
Throughout the Revolutionary War, the Continental army struggled to feed its troops. These years of hardship are often what comes to mind when we think of dining in the 18th century. However, this struggle was far from the reality experienced by many Patriot officers at home in the years following the war.
What did the members of the upper class have for dinner on an average day?
How did their dining practices change after the Revolution?
What was happening in the kitchens of private homes in New York in the late 18th century?
Join culinary historian Lavada Nahon as she explores the history of everyday dining of the early Republic.
A tasting buffet of common 18th century dinner dishes will be paired with this talk.
