Join Carnegie-Stout Public Library on Thursday, September 7 for a potluck celebrating Dubuque’s history at 5:30 p.m., followed by a presentation on Iowa’s Rich Culinary Heritage by Darcy Maulsby at 6:30 p.m.
Arrive early to enjoy a potluck meal featuring recipes from historic Dubuque cookbooks. Potluck dishes will be prepared by local volunteers. To learn more about the potluck menu or to register to prepare and bring a dish for the potluck, please visit the Reference Desk on the library’s second floor.
Iowa’s delectable cuisine is quintessentially Midwestern, grounded in its rich farming heritage and spiced with diverse ethnic influences. Dig in as author and lifelong Iowan Darcy Dougherty Maulsby serves up Iowa’s tastiest traditions. From the chili-and-cinnamon-rolls phenomenon to Maid-Rites to the moveable feast known as RAGBRAI, discover the remarkable stories behind Iowa classics and savor a smorgasbord of other unique Iowa food traditions with Darcy's fun, interactive program. Copies of Darcy’s book, The Culinary History of Iowa: Sweet Corn, Pork Tenderloins, Maid-Rites and More, will be available for purchase.
The public is cordially invited to attend. Registration is only required for those interested in preparing a dish for the potluck.
