In time for the holidays, Wilton Historical Society will be offering two lectures and demonstrations by noted food and drink experts. The series of two talks will be given on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm, beginning November 15 and ending on the 29. Admission is free for members and $10 per lecture for non-members.
On November 15 Eric D. Lehman and Amy Nawrocki, University of Bridgeport professors and co-authors of A History of Connecticut Food and A History of Connecticut Wine: Vineyard in Your Backyard will investigate almost four centuries of American eating and drinking - the choice of crops raised, the livestock and the seafood that has formed a distinctive regional cuisine. They tell stories behind Connecticut’s regional cuisine and explain the recent emergence of wine production in the state.
