As part of our Monday lecture series:  Historical Culinary Incidents: An Exploration of Food and Culture in the Pioneer Valley, Sara Jonsberg will discuss the work surrounding cuisine at Mt.Holyoke in its earliest days and the food traditions that have lasted from the 1800’s into present day. Ice cream is still eaten at dawn on Founder’s Day at the grave of Mary Lyon, the founder of Mount Holyoke Seminary (now College). Mount Holyoke was the first ever location for women to experience post-secondary education as rigorous as that available to their brothers at Amherst or Harvard. Admission $7 / $5 members
