kimchiGrandma's Kimchi : A Culinary Sampler

Sunday, September 27th at 2:00pm

A staple of Korean cuisine, Kimchi refers to fermented vegetable dishes often made with cabbage pickled in a brine of ginger, garlic, scallions, and chili pepper. To whet the palate for Oktoberfest, join us for an introduction to and sampling of Kimchi. There are wonderful variations on the dish and we've asked some local home cooks to share their family's tastes and techniques.

We'll be back next September with the Sauerkraut edition of our Pickled Cabbage taste sampling program.

Suggested donation $3.

changeAn Afternoon with Harley Spiller and his new book Keep the Change:

A Collector's Tales of Lucky Pennies, Counterfeit C-Notes and other Curious Currency

Sunday, November 15, 2015 at 2:00pm

Join us for a truly entertaining and informative talk with Harley J. Spiller about his new book. Spiller began collecting money at age five when, home sick from school, his father tossed him a sack of pennies and a Whitman coin folder. In the five decades since, Spiller has amassed one of America's most extensive collections of unusual financial artifacts along with a wealth of anecdotes and quirky historical details about US currency. Copies of his book, published by Princeton University Architectural Press will be available for sale.

Admission $5 and $4 for members & students. Light refreshments served after the talk.
