U.S. Route 66 covers a lot of miles – and that means a lot of delicious food along the way. In this illustrated lecture, historian Leslie Goddard explores some of the most iconic restaurants and foods found along the “Mother Road.” Many Route 66 foods are regional dishes, providing an edible snapshot of the nation. Others developed specifically to serve time-crunched motorists. We’ll visit landmark Route 66 destinations like the Big Texan Steak Ranch, Ted Drewes’ Frozen Custard, and the Cozy Dog Drive In. You’ll learn about some quirky foods found along the highway and get recipes for a few regional favorites you can recreate at home.

This event is FREE. This class will be a virtual presentation.
