Food for Thought: Tidbits from Virginia’s Culinary History 

When: Sat., Nov. 17, 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m.
Price: $10-$17.
From Berkley Plantation’s claim to have held the true First Thanksgiving, to Richmond’s modern allure as one of the best food cities in the country, Virginia’s culinary history spans more than 400 years of European, African American, and Virginia Indian influences. Food festivals scattered throughout the commonwealth celebrate harvests of tomatoes, oysters, ham, peanuts, and apples, while the diversity of our current inhabitants is seen in Greek, Lebanese, Latino, German, and Asian food events. We will explore items from our collection that speak to the way food has played an active role in our history, as a community anchor and economic driver.
