Heritage Cooking: Family Bread (virtual)

In many families, bread is essential, and it can take many forms. Ritual breads play important roles in religious or cultural celebrations. Before mass production, bread was baked in home ovens, or the village’s central bake ovens. We explore ways that bread baking and eating connect families and heritage in SE Pennsylvania. During this program, participants are invited to cook along with us as we make Indian Poori or flatbread and a savory quick lentil stew.

Join folkways historian, Dr. Cassandra Gunkel and Tyler State Park Educator, Bonnie Tobin as we discuss our shared history and connections through bread. Participants will receive recipes and shopping list in advance so you can choose to cook along or just join for the presentation and discussion.

Registration will close at 9 am on Dec 1, 2022. Meeting link and recipes will be sent at that time via email from btobin@pa.gov. Ingredient list will auto send when you register.
