Please join food historian Joyce White to learn about The Great Maryland Recipe Hunt, a project by the Maryland State Archives and Hammond-Harwood House Museum to collect and preserve Maryland’s culinary traditions.

The presentation will offer a look at the history of Maryland’s most iconic food traditions and food businesses, such as Maryland beaten biscuits, hominy, crab cakes, terrapin, muskrat, stuffed ham, coddies, lemon sticks, Smith Island Cake, the Baltimore fish pepper, McCormick Spices and Old Bay to some lesser known fare including white potato pie, and Jewish Apple Cake. Joyce will also discuss her work and role as a researcher for the state of Maryland exhibit at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans, LA.

Joyce has a B.A. from William Smith College, an M.A. in American Studies from Penn State University, and has studied food history with leaders in the field at various historic sites in England and the US.
