A Rich and Fertile Land

DuPage County Historical Museum

Join Bruce Kraig, Culinary Historians of Northern Illinois, and Michelle Podkowa, DuPage County Historical Museum, as they discuss "A Rich and Fertile Land”. Kraig and Podkowa examine how American food habits transformed the Midwest from virgin prairies to the nation’s farming heartland. Podkowa will talk about how her family’s history is a living example of how this happened and what life is like “down on the farm”.

Bring your own agricultural memories and food recipes to share. Refreshments served. Free tickets for Culinary Historians of Northern Illinois and DuPage County Historical Museum members and children. $5 per ticket for Non-Members.
