As we previously posted, our fall luncheon meeting on Saturday, November 22 will feature Dr. Molly McClain’s timely presentation of “How Did Pocahontas Cook Bear/Bare?; The Annals of Early American Cookery.” With the proximity to Thanksgiving, perhaps we will learn about our own ancestors’ seasonal fare in the years before that legendary Massachusetts event. This also presents a unique opportunity for anyone interested in learning about our Society and membership.
Dr. McClain chairs the History Department at the University of San Diego. A ninth generation San Diegan and a Colonial Dame, she has authored three books and numerous articles on British and American history. She also edits The Journal of San Diego History for the San Diego History Center.
Invitations with details will soon be sent to members, prospective applicants and friends.
We will be meeting at noon at the South Coast Winery Resort and Spa: 34843 Rancho California Road; Temecula, CA. 92591. The event cost is $35, and luncheon entrée choices will include California Cobb salad with a fruit first course, chicken BLT with pesto on a potato bun with chips, and a small salad and a vegetarian wrap with chips and a small salad, all to be served with beverage and dessert.
This event also offers the unique opportunity to tour one of our premier Southern California wineries. We have arranged a special one for our group at 3 PM, so indicate with your reservation if you will participate .
