The Row House: Pennsylvania Germans: The Original Immigrants
November 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The PA Dutch culture is pervasive in Lancaster County. Did you notice? You may wonder why Lank-iss-tur is a thing. You may be a descendant yourself if your name is anything like Martin. You may be a different kind of immigrant. So, who were these dreamers who settled our fertile lands? Who are the PA Dutch now? And what, pray tell, is scrapple?
Join us for an
enlightening evening, complete with a scrapple tasting and all the glorious aroma that goes with that!
Steven Nolt is Senior Scholar at the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies and Professor of History and Anabaptist Studies at Elizabethtown College. Amy Strauss is author of Pennsylvania Scrapple: A Delectable History. She is a food writer living in Philadelphia and has been published in Philly Beer Scene, Edible Philly, The Spirit News, Main Line Today, Southwest Airlines, OpenTable, BlackBook, Philadelphia City Paper and Drink Philly.
