‘All Things Apple’ at core of colonial America

Forget pumpkin spice: In the 18th century, food and drink revolved around a renowned  forbidden fruit.

The final Tavern Talks of 2016 will be held on Nov.

The final Tavern Talks of 2016 will be held on Thursday, Nov. 10.

On Thursday, Nov. 10,  from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns-Brinton House tavern, the public is invited to sample and learn about one of the Colonists’ favorite treats: the apple.

Some of the featured stations for the night include seasonal wine and cider samples from Chaddsford Winery, interactive cider-making demonstrations with Delaware’s Civil Cider, and apple variety samples with Indian Orchards. Guests will also learn about apple-related lore and taste a variety of 18th-century apple recipes. At the end of the evening, guests may forget pumpkin spice ever existed.

Tavern Talks is a monthly, interactive experience – not a lecture – aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more.

Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, a historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $15 for non-members and $10 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person, or online as space is limited.

"All Things Apple" is the final Tavern Talks for 2016. Stay tuned for next year’s line-up of other interesting and engaging topics, which will be released after the last session.  For more info on the CFHS or to purchase tickets, call 610-388-7376, email info@chaddsfordhistory.org, or visit www.chaddsfordhistory.org.
