The Story Behind the American Pie
With Thanksgiving approaching and then Christmas, we naturally think of family gatherings around the table which normally end in dessert. Traditionally, this includes some type of favorite pie. But do we truly know the story behind the pie? Catherine Lambrecht will share the history and insight as to where and when this idea of the American Pie derived. She is an expert on family heirloom recipes. Catherine will demonstrate how these recipes are passed from generation to generation with the ability to engender feelings of comfort and catalyze memories. As a veteran of culinary competitions in Lake County and Illinois State Fairs, Catherine is the founder of Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance and is associated with other Culinary Historians.
