Program Description:

What are the most iconic foods that define the Sunshine State? Caldo gallego, gazpacho, or black bean soup? Key Lime or sweet potato pie? Was the Cuban sandwich invented in Tampa but perfected in Miami? How does one explain the rise of the grouper sandwich? What has happened to our once vaunted oyster industry? Did Georgia, the Carolinas, and Texas simply export its barbecue into Florida or does the Sunshine State have its own BBQ heritage? Gary Mormino teaches a class in food history at the University of South Florida and is writing a book on Florida foodways. Doors to the Discovery Center open at 5 p.m. Presentation begins at 6 p.m. Cost for non-museum members is $10, which includes light appetizers. A cash bar is available. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made via e-mail at info@keysdiscovery.com or by calling 305-922-2237.
