Eating like an 1840’s Austinite
Aside from firing the legendary cannon shot that touched off the Archive War, Mrs. Angelina Eberly was known for the cooking in her boardinghouses. Working from cookbooks, advertisements, descriptions of food at her San Felipe and Matagorda boardinghouses, and other regional food influences, food writer, chef, and historian MM Pack returns to Modern Times to help us reconstruct this renowned feature of our city’s early food scene.
Join us and Ms. Pack at the Neill-Cochran House Museum at 2:00 pm on March 3, 2019. Complimentary refreshments provided. Presentation begins at 2:30 pm. Museum staff and Ms. Pack will be working diligently on developing suitably authentic refreshments.
Admission is $10 to the general public, $5 to students with valid ID, and free to members of the Friends of the Neill-Cochran House Museum. Space is limited; while tickets are available at the door, we encourage patrons to register online.
Parking is available free to patrons in the museum lot located off of 23rd street between San Gabriel and Leon.
