In honor of Thanksgiving, let’s revisit last year’s Thanksgiving Spokesmodel podcast.
Food historian extraordinaire and Thanksgiving Spokesmodel Kathleen Wall of Plimoth Plantation joined us to talk about Thanksgiving. First, a warning we had a small technical issue at the beginning so for first five minutes I thought we might have to cancel, but she does call in. We start out with her story about Barbara Walker, author of the Little House Cookbook, visiting Plimoth Plantation. Then we turn to Thanksgiving history and historic foodways. About 30 minutes in we talk about the Three Kernels of Corn followed up by the popcorn at Thanksgiving mention from Farmer Boy. That’s followed up by how Thanksgiving became so important in Plymouth and what you can do if you spend Thanksgiving there today.
