CHoWline–Cake, A Slice of History

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but Alysa Levene proves a cake is never just a cake. In each slice she finds issues of economics, technology, cultural symbolism, and gender roles–really gives you something to chew on!

If you’re in the DMV, consider joining us for a meeting or event. Tomorrow we’ll have William Woys Weaver speaking on folklore and “fake lore” of Pennsylvania Dutch cooking. If you’re not local, keep up with us by subscribing to CHoWline.
