Info

Early Nutmeggers quaffed and consumed some strange substances, from rattle-skull (rum, dark beer, lime, brandy and sherry) to hasty pudding, (barely digestible during those early years). Authors Eric D. Lehman and Amy Nawrocki will delight attendees with surprising, and sometimes amusing, tales of what our forebears managed to ingest in a presentation based on their books, "A History of Connecticut Food," and "A History of Connecticut Wine," on Thursday, September 26, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. The presentation will be preceded by a wine reception, by donation, at 6 p.m. in the Webb Barn. Admission is free for members, $5 for nonmembers, payable at the door. A signing of their books will follow.

The scholarly pair will share remarkable facts you may not have realized you need to know. For example, you may have intuited that early settlers consumed an array of wildlife, but owl chowder...? And though you might associate "sweet and sour" with Asian food, it was in fact a flavor loved by Connecticut colonists, especially with pork.

During their presentation, Lehman and Nawrocki will take their audience on a tasty tour of nearly four centuries of American food and drink, discussing the choice of crops cultivated, livestock raised, and seafood that has formed a distinctive Connecticut cuisine.

Lehman and Nawrocki both teach English and creative writing at the University of Bridgeport and coauthored "A History of Connecticut Wine: Vineyard in Your Backyard." Lehman 's essays, reviews and stories have appeared in dozens of journals and magazines. His books include "Becoming Tom Thumb," "Shadows of Paris," and "The Quotable New Englander." Nawrocki is an award-winning poet whose collections include "Reconnaissance," "Four Blue Eggs," and "Mouthbrooders."
