Press Release – Ella Sharp Museum Edible History

1 08 2008

Sounds cool.  From a press release….

The Edible History dinner will take place in Ella’s Granary Restaurant (in the Museum) and will feature a menu of mid-19th century fare. .

Edible History dinners are annotated meals, Each course will have a brief explanation of the food-what it is, how it was prepared, etc. The menu (a secret); for this first Edible History program is tailored to the arrival of Mary Merriman, Ella Sharp’s mother, in Jackson in 1856.

This dinner imagines what Mary might have eaten in this earlier Jackson. Museum staff combed through the Museum collection and period cookbooks and recipes to create a menu reflecting Jackson in the 1850s.

Accompanying the meal is a slide presentation of Mary Wing Farnsworth Merriman. “We are so often focused on the life of her daughter, Ella-yet Mary was a fascinating woman in her own right.

The logic is that without Mary there would be no Ella and without Ella no beautiful park or Museum. We owe a lot to Mary and the way she raised her daughter.” Upcoming meals will feature other members of the Merriman-Sharp family and other periods of Jackson history.

The Edible History: Mary Merriman dinner requires a paid reservation.

Cost for the meal, period beverage, and program is $35per person.

Contact the Museum for more information and for reservations at (517)787-2320.

Most Facebook users are teenagers who do not have a
lot of money to spend. While that mantra may have worked
for Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams,” it doesn’t necessarily work for credit
union websites. See the action on the left hand column of the home page.
