Michigan’s Culinary HeritagePriscilla-Massie

Through storytelling and character portrayals, Priscilla Massie, assisted by husband Larry Massie, relates the fascinating evolution of Michigan’s unique culinary heritage.

Using recipes, folk-lore, and time-worn techniques based on her award-winning book, Walnut Pickles & Watermelon Cake: A Century of Michigan Cooking, Massie discusses old cookbooks as popular literature, ethnic cookery, the evolution of women’s roles, and how technological changes in the kitchen have affected lifestyles.
