Halloween Cooking the Tree of Life

state museum moon photo illustrationThe popular Cooking the Tree of Life series at the State Museum is making a Halloween cameo next week with "the food origins of monster myths." From the blurbage:

Vampires, witches and zombies have terrified and entertained us for eons, but where did they originate? Could it be something they ate? Museum Curator and Mad Scientist Dr. Roland Kays gives the scientific back story to three of these spooky stories of human-food interactions while the Food Network's Chef David Britton cooks up samples using the same ingredients. Come learn something new and sample some unique food-the experience will change you.

It starts at 7 pm on October 26. It's $5 (reservations, call Peggy Steinback at 474-1569 or email nysmpp@mail.nysed.gov). Also: "Come in costume for an extra treat!"


We'll also be selling tickets at the door, cash only.
