Human Beans: A Bean Supper Series
November 5, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Throughout the fall, the McGillicuddy Humanities Center will be holding a series of bean suppers as part of its annual symposium theme of “Society, Colonization and Decolonization.” Each of the suppers will feature a different cultural identity and bean recipe, including Franco-American bean-hole beans with brown bread, U.S. southwestern-style beans with red and green chiles, Cuban bean chili, Brazilian black beans, and a final potluck supper to which people will be invited to contribute beans cooked from their own recipes.
Bean Supper dates and geographic themes:
Tuesday, Oct. 22 — Maine
Tuesday, Oct. 29 — New Mexico
Tuesday, Nov. 5 — Brazil
Tuesday, Nov. 12 — Cuba
Tuesday, Nov. 19 — Global Potluck
Each evening will include a brief presentation by a local specialist, including historians, farmers and folklorists, and will touch on the process by which the beans and the recipes arrive in the Americas — the human dimension of beans.
All suppers are free and open to the public, held at the Church of Universal Fellowship in Orono. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
