Non-Trivial Pursuits Continues at Chapel-By-The Sea
Chapel-By-The Sea’s series of “Non-Trivial Pursuits” continues on February 23, 7:30 to 9 p.m., with Andrew Huse and “Florida’s Delicious History: A gastronomic Journey through Modern Florida.” This program, made possible by the Florida Humanities Council, offers a gustatory romp through modern Florida’s cuisine, with a look back at union soup houses, African-American jook joints, shady speakeasies, drive-in burger stands, barbecue pits, fish friends, and palaces of luxurious leisure. From the rarefied cuisine of the super-rich to the humble home-style foods of city and hamlet, food habits, queasy and quirky, times and trendy, are explored.
Huse lectures about Florida’s food culture and currently teaches a Florida Gastronomy graduate course for the Florida Studies Program at USF. He authored the Columbian Restaurant’s centennial historic cookbook, and currently conducting research for a book on the statewide history of restaurants and food culture.
Chapel-By-The-Sea Community Church is located at 54 Bay Esplanade on Clearwater Beach. There is no charge for the program. Please call 446-0430 to make reservations and for further information.
