The last of the series provides a flavorful conclusion to our celebration of New York’s rich cultural heritage; as we welcome Amanda Massie, Curator for the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation’s Bureau of Historic Sites and Valerie Balint, former curator at Olana State Historic Site, as they embark on a culinary journey that links technology to food tastes and availability. Learn how exotic foods such as pineapple and avocado found their way into 19th-century cookbooks, and how the ability to serve them on Japanese imported plates became within the reach of middle class homes throughout the United States. Discover the math and science behind shopping, cooking and dining in this period. Through an illustrated lecture, period reproductions and a tasting, Ms. Massie and Ms. Balint will tickle your taste buds.
