‘Two Montgomery County Cooks: Recipes and Communities’ Will Be Presentation of Montgomery History on Tuesday, June 28

Culinary history—recipes, cookbooks, what we ate and how we ate—can reveal new understandings of community and culture. A talk and slide presentation that will be presented by Montgomery History at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, will explore cookbooks written a generation apart by Elizabeth Ellicott Lea and Maria Brooke Watkins.

“Two Montgomery County Cooks: Recipes and Communities” will be hosted by Claudia Kousoulas and Ellen Letourneau. They will look at how each collection of recipes reflects life in Montgomery County in their time. The talk is drawn from the speakers’ new book, A Culinary History of Montgomery County.
