Vermont Eats: Mt. Lebanon to Vermont: George Haddad's Journey
Have fun with food AND learn about local history in the comfort of your home kitchen. Our spring cooking class series features traditional dishes from three immigrant communities found in Vermont.
Week two: Mt. Lebanon to Vermont: George Haddad's Journey
Like many of his compatriots, George Haddad emigrated from Mt. Lebanon to Vermont in the late 19th century, settling in Rutland. In 1916, he published his memoir detailing a life of travel and business, including dozens of recipes. Join the Vermont Historical Society as we make some of Haddad’s dishes, using his experiences as a lens for exploring the story of Lebanese immigration to Vermont.
These virtual classes are 90 minutes long. Participants will receive recipes and ingredient lists prior to class and are encouraged (but not required) to cook along.
