First Friday Lunch & Learn | Tasting the Past: Exploring Kansas Food Memories
November 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lunch & Learn with Humanities Kansas
First Friday each month at 12 noon
In partnership with Humanities Kansas, LCL will host, “Tasting the Past: Exploring Kansas Food Memories,” a presentation & discussion by Louise Hanson. It’s part of Humanities Kansas’ Movement of Ideas Speakers Bureau, featuring presentations and workshops designed to share stories that inspire, spark conversation that inform, and generate insights that strengthen civic engagement.
Food is a powerful expression of cultural memory. For years, ethnic groups in Kansas have used food to maintain connections to the past. This presentation will explore food traditions from a number of ethnic populations in Kansas, including German, Czech, Italian, Jewish, and others.
