Brown Bag Lunch Lecture – December 21, 2017


The History of Christmas Foods

with Stefanie Ritter

Roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, bean casserole and pumpkin pie are easily recognized as a traditional holiday meal, but has it always been? How about swan and peacock served with feathers? When did you last have plum-pudding? Or a nice side of cooked tongue?

This lecture will enlighten you about the history and meaning of some of our favorite holiday dishes. Please bring your own memories of favorite dishes and if you wish the secret family recipe to share….

Bring your lunch, bring your friends, or just bring yourself to our Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series once a month.  Speakers will present topics of special interest for high desert residents. The lectures start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5  or free for Museum Members/Sponsors.  Beverages will be served.
