The Ancient Fruitcake

What Really, Really Old Food Tells Us About History, Culture, Love, and Memory This talk is not about the old leftovers in the fridge. It is about food that is so old, so unusual, or so meaningful, that no one dares throw it away. Discover the foods archeologists have found buried with mummies, the petrified banana so appealing it sparked a Banana Museum, the 350-year-old fruitcake handed down through generations, 2000-year-old bog butter; and the pickle that has been in a jar since the 1860s. During this “chew and chat,” author and broadcaster Harriet Baskas explores how and why these and other formerly fresh foods may have been forgotten, intentionally tucked away, or preserved due to unusual or peculiar circumstances. And, more importantly, we’ll talk about how these and other vintage vittles can and do hold memories, tell stories, and connect us with family, with culture, and with history. This presentation is part of Humanities Washington’s Speakers Bureau program, in which cultural experts discuss history, politics, music, philosophy, and everything in between at venues around the state. Wednesday December 12, 7:00 pm at the library.
