7:30 pm (Berwick Academy)
Sandy Oliver will explore the last three hundred years of vegetable eating in America, its evolution to vegan dishes on restaurant menus, and invite sharing of gardening advice useful today.
Bread as the staff of life, augmented by precious meat, and accompanied by "garden sauce" -- an early term for vegetables -- has evolved into "Eat More Kale" and vegan dishes on restaurant menus. How has this come about? Sandy's lively lecture will address this question and give some ideas on how to incorporate vegetables in your own meals.
