500 Years of Eating in Florida: A History of Florida Foodways

Thursday, Apr 11, 2013 7:00p to 8:30p

“Florida Foodways” explores the most significant event in the history of modern food production and consumption. In the “Columbian exchange,” animals, plants, culture, ideas, and even diseases were carried to the America’s by the Spanish. Hear the story of how Iberico pigs, Castillian cattle, Andalusian chickens, Valencia oranges, and Canary Island sugarcane arrived in Florida, and how, in return, the Americans sent tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers back to Spain. Call to register.
