Looking for a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and Meet Quaker History?
Join Arch Street Meeting House for an extraordinary craft beer and candy tasting on Friday, February 12th at 7pm!
Designed for two, enjoy a relaxing evening for you and your sweetheart as ASMH staff and volunteers create an amazing, personalized experience by hand-delivering your valentine’s treats the day before the event. Tickets include a variety of craft beer from Conshohocken Brewing Company, Duclaw Brewing Company, and Breckinridge Brewing Company, as well as candies from the delicious and Quaker-founded, Cadbury Chocolates. For an added bonus, VIP ticket holders will also receive additional chocolates from Shane Confectionery, America’s Oldest Continuously Operating Confectionary shop that’s located right here in historic Philadelphia! With this thoughtful gift, you and your loved one will be ready to go for a 30-minute hosted tasting, prior to a 45-minute presentation from Dr. Katherine Turner.
Dr. Katherine Turner teaches US history and American Studies at Rowan University in New Jersey. Her book How the Other Half Ate: A History of Working-Class Meals at the Turn of the Century (University of California Press, 2014) explored how industrialization transformed the job of making dinner, and the options for buying dinner, for America’s immigrants, factory workers, and tenant farmers. She is currently working on a history of food in Pennsylvania. She will lead the audience on a Valentine’s tour of chocolate: how this bitter bean from the New World became a sweet, milky European confection, the surprising role of abstemious Quakers in making it an affordable indulgence, and how we learned to say “I love you” with chocolate!
