The next session of the new South Shore Locavores lineup is coming right up on Tuesday November 22nd.  The topic is 1621 and Your Authentic Thanksgiving Table.  We hope you’ll join us and enjoy the presentation by Kathleen M. Wall*, Plimoth Plantation Colonial Foodways Culinarian for the past 11 years and with Plimoth Plantation since 1980.  You’ll have the opportunity to try a sample of pottage made from turkey and Indian corn, a New England twist on an old English dish that is a great way to use leftover turkey. 

*Kathleen M. Wall has worked at Plimoth Plantation since 1980 and for the last 11 years has had the enviable position of Colonial Foodways Culinarian.  She trains staff in period cooking techniques and 17th-century foodways, and coordinates the daily cooking in the 1627 English Village.  She plans public programs for adults, children and families, participates in film shoots and media interviews, responds to academic inquiries about colonial foodways, and writes and lectures extensively for Museum staff, scholars and the general public. 

The South Shore Locavores Swap Table, introduced at your suggestion at the end of the last season, will be a feature this year as well.  This month the theme is COOKIES.  Please bring a plate or two of homemade cookies and the recipe (or anything else food-related) that you’d like to swap at the gathering.  Show off your baking skills! 

Love to cook?  Please feel free to bring a dish to share to any of the gatherings.  There will be time at the beginning and end of each meeting for Munching and Mingling.
