Presentation with Keith Stavely, Kathleen Fitzgerald and Linda Stavely

August 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

WYMAN TAVERN LECTURE SERIES: INDIGENOUS PEOPLE, HISTORY AND CULTURE INTO THE 21ST CENTURY

Presentation with Keith Stavely, Kathleen Fitzgerald and Linda Stavely

Wednesday, August 29  7pm
Historical Society
246 Main St.  Keene

Join Keith Stavely and Kathleen Fitzgerald book signing for their early American cooking book and Linda Stavely will prepare samples of early American recipes including a Native American inspired dish.

In their new book, United Tastes: The Making of the First American Cookbook, historians Keith Stavely and Kathleen Fitzgerald explore the social and gastronomic complexities of the eighteenth-century world that produced the first American cookbook, American Cookery, and brought Amelia Simmons, an obscure orphan-cook before the public as one of America’s first female authors.

In their earlier book, Northern Hospitality: Cooking by the Book in New England, Stavely and Fitzgerald probe the food culture of the region through a close examination of its earliest cookbooks, authors, and recipes. The best-known foods of the region, such as baked beans and chowder, turn out to be only a small—and fairly recent—part of the story.

Join the authors on Thursday, August 29, at 6:30 p.m. for a slide talk on the delights and surprises of historic New England cooking, based on their books, United Tastes and Northern Hospitality.  Following the discussion, Keene’s own culinary master Linda Stavely will provide guests with food tastings using early American recipes.
