Learn About the Sweet and Savory History of Pie at KTM&HC’s Taproom Tastings Virtual Program on November 17

Taproom Tastings, the popular virtual program series formerly known as Tavern Tastings, is BACK and better than ever! Join Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center (KTM&HC) Chief Curator Catherine Prescott and scholar Mary Tsaltas-Ottomanelli, livestreaming from our historic tavern museum, as they investigate historic food and drink cultures.

On Thursday, November 17, the discussion is all about pie!

In an edition that perfectly sets the mood for Thanksgiving, Catherine and Mary will explore the sweet and savory history of pies in America. They’ll discuss how pies became a cornerstone of the American diet, beginning with the earliest colonists, as well as the customs and traditions of making and serving pies. Catherine and Mary will also share their favorite historical pie recipes. Their relaxed, conversational style is an engaging way to get unique and entertaining insights into our culinary histories and learn how food and drink have long been central to building and maintaining community and cultural identity.

Taproom Tastings: Pie will be held on Thursday, November 17 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. Registration is required, and registrants can sign up for a single program or the entire series. Taproom Tastings is free for all, with a suggested donation of $10. To register, go to www.keelertavernmuseum.org/events.
