Beyond Baked Beans: Why New Englanders Eat What They Do

Thursday, Feb 7, 2013 12:15p to 1:00p

What happens when cultural heritage meets a new climate, new ingredients, and new neighbors? Until the mid-1800s, regional foodways familiar to baked-bean-and-brown-bread-eating New Englanders emerged from warm summers, bitter cold winters, plus encounters with Native Americans and new immigrants. Food historian Sandy Oliver will outline the gradual shifts from peas to beans, wheat bread to rye and Indian and back again, and tell why we ate salt fish dinners on Saturday instead of Friday.
