The culture of food
Learn how one culture developed its ways with food Wednesday at the William Paca House and Garden in Annapolis.
The Historic Annapolis Foundation's director of horticulture, Mollie Ridout, will use slides and lectures to explain how certain foods, such as peanuts, chili peppers, okra and sweet potatoes, became integral to African and traditional Southern cooking.
"African Plants, American Plants: The Great Exchange" is a free program, but reservations are required.
Take a brown bag lunch to the event, which is scheduled to begin at noon.
The William Paca House and Garden is at 186 Prince George St., Annapolis. For more information, call 410-267-8146.
