  • Pickering House 18 Broad Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

What would the Pickerings and their contemporaries have been eating back then? How would it have been cooked? What about spices? Utensils? Where did they get their ingredients? How dangerous was standing over a fire? What about our friend, the Rumford Roaster? Join Karen Scalia of Salem Food Tours as we step back in time and learn about 17th and 18th century Food and Cookery. Lecture includes a mini spice tasting. Reservations a must!
