Food Along the Lewis & Clark

In this talk, Sohn will explore the domestic side of the famous expedition to the Pacific, which left St. Louis in May 1804 and returned in September 1806. What did the Corps of Discovery — some 30 people strong — eat during the 28-month trek to the Oregon coast and back? Sohn will offer recipes used by the explorers and the Indians who assisted them. Historic foods will be updated for today’s kitchen. If the spirit of culinary exploration seizes your group, Sohn will provide recipes in advance so you can prepare an authentic meal or snacks for the talk.
