VIRTUAL- Dishing Up New Jersey: Exploring the State's Food Traditions

VIRTUAL- Dishing Up New Jersey: Exploring the State's Food Traditions

As we think about Thanksgiving and gathering together, join author John Holl as he takes a culinary journey through the state to talk about recipes, the importance of traditions, and the flavors that bring everyone to the table. From practical recipes that evoke strong memories, to ones that are fun to make together, this talk presented via Zoom will delve into how to make the most of our time together in the kitchen and show why New Jersey is the best food state.

The talk is inspired by John's book "Dishing up New Jersey" for which he searched the 21 counties to find the best recipes New Jersey has to offer. The recipes in the book celebrate the foods, flavors, cultures, and traditions of the Garden State and feature the state’s melting pot with Italian, Puerto Rican, Polish, Chinese and Indian dishes. Dishes included feature New Jersey’s own produce — tomatoes, corn, cranberries, blueberries, apples — along with deep-fried boardwalk treats, diner bites and recipes contributed by casinos, bison and dairy farms, food trucks, old-school delis, famous bakeries, and more.

John Holl is an award-winning journalist covering the beer industry. He’s the author of several books including "Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint" and "The American Craft Beer Cookbook"

The program is open to all but registration is required. Registered participants will be emailed the Zoom link a day before the program.
