The JASNA-GL Jane Austen Birthday & Christmas Tea will feature Julienne Gehrer, author of Dining with Jane Austen. We will explore the world of Jane Austen through the foods and dining experiences familiar to her. A careful study of Jane Austen's letters reveals a woman passionate about many topics, epecially food. "You know how interesting the purchase of a sponge-cake is to me" (Ltr. 15 June 1808). Our culinary journey will reveal details of the author's life through the foods on her plate. See favorite dishes recreated from two manuscript cookbooks held within the Austen family circle. Learn how a three-year research project led to attic-to-cellar photography at Jane Austen's House Museum. The tea is open to all. JASNA Members are free; Guests are $10 per person. RSVP is required, due to limited seating.
