On Monday, November 1, HSCC is partnering with Carroll County Public Library and Rudolph Girls Bookstore to offer a talk by John Ota, author of The Kitchen: A journey through history in search of the perfect design.
John will share his knowledge of the culinary history, architecture, cooking methods and dishes from the first Thanksgiving of 1621.
As part of the research for The Kitchen, John travelled to Plymouth, Massachusetts where he cooked a meal over an open fire with Pilgrim Foodways historian Kathleen Wall.
It’s the 400th anniversary of the Harvest Feast joining the New England colonists and the Wampanoag people. Learn about 1621 recipes, truths and misconceptions about this favorite holiday. Yes, there was turkey – but it was not the main event!
