Future Programs

CHEW programs include presentations by speakers, lively discussions, foodie quiz contests, and delicious demonstrations. Past speakers, through their research, have brought us such eclectic topics as the history of the birthday cake, the origins of Door County fish boils, the saga of corn, Native American fish foodways, food pyramid debates, and traditional Serbian cookery.

Please join us 7:15 pm at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St, Madison, WI.

June 4, 2014 – “Ovens on the Edge: How the First European Colonists Baked Bread,” presented by Paula Marcoux

The author of a new book, Cooking with Fire: From Roasting on a Spit to Baking in a Tannur, Rediscovered Techniques and Recipes That Capture the Flavors of Wood-Fired Cooking,  explores the earliest colonial baking, revealing how folks deployed a range of strategies and adapted their technologies, and ultimately their expectations, to local conditions. Samples from Marcoux’s book will be served, and a book signing will follow her presentation.

Paula Marcoux is a food historian who lives in Plymouth, Massachusetts; she has worked professionally as an archaeologist, cook and bread-oven builder. She is the food editor of Edible South Shore magazine, writes on food history topics for popular and academic audiences, and consults with museums, film producers, and publishers.

Please join us 7:15 pm at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St, Madison, WI.
