Sara Evenson will share the smells and tastes of the period during an interactive lecture on Friday, September 7th at 6pm. Attendees will learn how food arrived in the Albany area, what flavor profiles were common, how foods were prepared, and will have the chance to sample a variety of items while exploring the material culture of food in ACHA’s latest exhibit.
