History Conversations REWIND: Bread & Beauty

January 1 - January 7

with Claudia Kousoulas

Just as the force and flow of ancient glaciers deposited soil and shaped hills, our decisions about property, policy, family, and food also shape the landscape. So much of what we value—a clean environment, local food, a diverse landscape, and a varied economy—comes together in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve. This talk, based on Bread & Beauty: A Year in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve, will tell the history of the Reserve, and its historical foodways, from the foods (and drink) of the C&O Canal boatmen to the diversity captured in Elizabeth Ellicott Lea’s1850 Domestic Cookery. This program originally aired in October 2021.

Rewind available January 1 through January 7.
