Learn A Culinary History Of Thanksgiving In America

culinary history of ThanksgivingEver wonder how pumpkin pie and roast turkey came to be synonymous with Thanksgiving? You may want to get yourself to Brooklyn restaurant The Farm on Adderley on November 13, when food blogger and "historic gastronomist" Sarah Lohman hosts an evening of "American Cookery" with a culinary history of Thanksgiving. Taste and learn about all of the holiday favorites, from mashed potatoes to green bean casserole, the origins of each recipe, and the traditions associated with each dish. Lohman is also an educator with the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and a curator with many New York-area institutions, and regularly leads talks and walks around the five boroughs with an emphasis on culinary history. She's previously teamed up with The Farm for events like a pre-industrial dinner.
