A fun time last night at the Sandy Spring Museum, talking about springtime food traditions.
A close look at the seasonal cycles, the foods we eat, and the holidays we celebrate, reveals ancient fears of famine and death.
From Demeter and Persephone to Mardi Gras, we share rituals and define our communities.
And we celebrate with symbols of life and fertility–greens, eggs, rabbits, and even jelly beans.
Thank you to the museum for the opportunity and to the bakers for sharing their skills and creativity!
