Chesapeake’s Bounty: Culinary History and Cooking Demonstration
Enjoy a night of culinary history and demonstration with Katie Barney Moose, author of a new cookbook, Chesapeake’s Bounty: Cooking with Regional Favorites. Ms. Moose will demonstrate how local ingredients from the Chesapeake region’s bay, fields and woods can be used to create dishes that are both easy and elegant. She will mix in traditions of the Bay and provide insight into the background of many local dishes.
Ms. Moose was born in Baltimore, is a descendant of the Claggett family of Maryland and many old New England whaling families. She’s lived in many great architectural, historic and waterside cities on the east and west coasts. Her geographic experiences have resulted in authoring regional guidebooks about Annapolis, Newport and the Eastern and Western Shores of Maryland. She has also written cookbooks focused on the regional bounty of both Nantucket and New England.
The Annapolis Maritime Museum will present the seventh in a series of ten presentations for the Museum’s Winter Lecture Series on Thursday, February 28 from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance, until February 28 at 4 p.m., online at www.amaritime.org for $17.50 (non-members) and $12.50 for members. Tickets at the door are $20.
