Connecticut Eats! A Bite of Food History in the Nutmeg State

Our State Fish

 

Coming up on Thursday, June 16th 2011  I will be presenting a program highlighting the food history of our State of Connecticut. (Including some great CT food inventions.) Come on over to the State Library/Museum of CT History on the 16th @ 12:00 to discover some delicious and unusual culinary history from Connecticut’s past and present.

Often referred to as the “Nutmeg State”, Connecticut’s contributions to the culinary world over the past 300 years have been inventive, historical and of course tasty.   On the menu are topics including:  Roast Meat Hill to Fishfry Street, (the geography of food) “Worn out like a June Shad “(the state our state fish), Sylvester Graham (who never ate a S’more), the Grinder (or is it a sub?) and for dessert “Let Them Eat Cake” ( as long as it’s Hartford Election Cake.) Bring your lunch, bring your curiosity and maybe even your appetite for some authentic samples of Connecticut inspired foods!

This talk is part of the State Library and Museum of Connecticut History’s Third Thursday BrownBag Lunchtime speaker series which features a variety of speakers on various aspects of Connecticut history. All programs are free and open to the public. The State Library/Museum of CT History is located @ 231 Capitol Avenue in Hartford. For more info contact me @ patrick.j.smith@ct.gov or 860-757-6534
