Soup to Nuts: An Eccentric History of Food

March 26 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The history of what and how we eat encompasses everything from the prehistoric mammoth luau to the medieval banquet to the modern three squares a day.
Why do the Irish eat corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day? Who invented lemonade? Why are turkeys called turkeys? And what are sugarplums anyway?
Get the answers to these questions and more from Rebecca Rupp, the author of several books for both children and adults, as well as blogs on food science and history for National Geographic.

These are Vermont Humanities Council programs, hosted by Fairlee Community Arts and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in these programs do not necessarily represent those of the NEH, VHC, or FCA.
