Yogi Picnic – Philly Food History

Sunday, May 18th, 4-6pm

at Naval Square (just south of the South St bridge)

pepperpot Krimmel

(Here are some people eating pepperpot soup in a market in Philadelphia in the early 19th century.)

Ever wanted to know more about Philly food history?

Did you know I have a Ph.D. in Food Anthropology with a focus on Philadelphia and that I attended Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris (where I finished first in my class)? I want to share some of my accumulated knowledge with you in the form of a fun casual picnic at my home in Naval Square.

You’ll be able to sample and learn more about historic Philadelphia foods such as… (all of the food will be vegetarian)

– Carrot Pudding
– Pepper Hash
– Vermicelli & Cheese (an early form of Mac & Cheese)
– Quarterly Meeting Pie
– Cheesecake
– Whipped Syllabub

I’ve also got great stories about turtle soup, sturgeon, “catfish, waffles and coffee,” and much much more!

Sign up will be available through May 16th.

Since we will be picnicing, please plan to bring either a blanket or lawn chair to suit your seating preferences.

Cost $15
