Pennsylvania German Foodways in the Delaware Valley (virtual, afternoon)

Part of the Cooking Cultures series

February 2, 9, 16, 23, March 2

*Afternoon series will be presentation/discussion only.*

*Join us at 6 pm for cooking demonstrations and recipes to cook along*

Contact btobin@pa.gov with questions.

In each afternoon virtual session, we will discuss the historic and cultural significance of the food and we are discussing in context of the peoples who have settled in the Delaware Valley.

Southeastern Pennsylvania is the perfect place to taste and savor many early and lasting influences on the foods we grow, harvest and eat. In six weekly workshops, we sample some of Pennsylvania’s heritage groups via their food and gardening traditions. 

Feb 2: Pennsylvania German Foodways in the Delaware Valley

Immigrants from Germany were the earliest and largest European groups to settle in Pennsylvania. It’s no wonder that German ideas about food are at the heart of so many “traditional” Pennsylvania foodways.

Feb 16: Chinese Food and Plant Cultures in the Delaware Valley
