The Friends of Hathorn Historical Society will host a colonial food tasting on Sun., Jan. 20 at 1:45 p.m. at the Warwick Senior Center, located at 132 Kings Hwy. in Warwick. Volunteer cooks will prepare authentic 18th century recipes to see what food was like during revolutionary days in Warwick, and will share samples.
Culinary historian, Lavada Nahon, who has appeared at many regional historic sites, will also demonstrate 18th century foodways and give some tips on preparation, including insights on the differences between food of the rich and that of the poor and enslaved.
The event is open to all with a freewill donation at the door. The tasting will begin immediately after the historical society’s annual business meeting which will run from 1 to 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to join and learn about what the group discovered about Revolutionary Warwick, accomplishments in 2018, and plans for 2019.
The snow date for the annual meeting and tasting event is Mon., Jan. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the same location. For weather updates visit www.hathornhouse.wordpress.com.
