Tryon Palace’s November Lunch and Learn to Highlight Tradition of Pies

NEW BERN, NC – Nov. 17, 2017

The history and tradition of pies during the holiday season throughout the 18th and 19th centuries will be the topic of Tryon Palace’s next installment during its monthly Lunch and Learn series. “As American as Apple Pie,” will be held Friday, Nov. 17, at noon in the North Carolina History Center.

“You’ll recognize many of the pies of the past, but you’ll also be surprised by the variety of ingredients and styles that were once fashionable,” said Lindy Cummings, Tryon Palace Research Historian. “Pie is one of those things that seems to simultaneously stay the same and constantly change.”

“As American as Apple Pie” is a part of Tryon Palace’s monthly lunch series.

Tickets for each event are $6 per person and free for Tryon Palace Foundation members. Visitors must bring their own lunch for these events. Each Lunch and Learn will begin at noon and guests will meet in Mattocks Hall inside the North Carolina History Center.
