CASTINE, Maine — Most of us expect to eat dinner with our own place setting of plate, knife, fork, and spoon; and we expect a roasted chicken to have its claws and head taken off before it is presented on a platter. Dining wasnâ€™t always like this in early America. Sandy Oliver will trace the story of how we learned more genteel ways of eating and cooking at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 30, at the Wilson Museum, 120 Perkins St. in Castine.
Sandy Oliver began her involvement with food and food history in 1971 at Mystic Seaport Museum, where she developed a fireplace cooking program in an 1830s house. She is the author of Saltwater Foodways and the publisher and editor of www.foodhistorynews.com, a website for anyone interested in food history.
