Nationally-known food historian and author Peter Rose explores the foodways brought to America by the Dutch more than three centuries ago, and how these foods were changed and adapted under new circumstances. Using slides of some 40 paintings of famous works of the Dutch masters, this presentation will demonstrate how these art works give an insight into 17th century food practices and shed new light on the colonial diet.
Peter will also discuss her new book, just released this summer, Delicious December: How the Dutch Brought Us Santa, Presents, and Treats (A Holiday Cookbook).
This event is cosponsored by AADL and the Culinary Historians of Ann Arbor.
The event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.
