A Taste of History with Joyce White

A Taste of Maryland

Learn about the history of Maryland’s most iconic food traditions and food businesses such as Maryland Beaten Biscuits, crab cakes, coddies, McCormick Spices and Old Bay to some less well-known fare including black licorice, white potato pie, and peach fluff. A look at Native American fare will also be included.  This presentation is based on research Joyce White has been doing in her role as curator for the state of Maryland permanent exhibit for the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans, LA.  The presentation will be followed by the opportunity to taste as assortment of sweet and savory Maryland fare such as Maryland White Chili, Crab Chips, Otterbein's Cookies, Jewish Apple Cake and Maryland White Potato Pie!
