Before trade began between the New World and the Old World, many kinds of food were unknown to different parts of the globe. This global trade opened a whole new culinary world to our kitchens!

Before Europeans stepped foot into the New World, they had never tasted many of the foods we love (and couldn't live without!) today. Can you imagine Italian food without tomatoes? Today it seems like a tall tale! The foods from the Old World were brought to the Americas, too, bringing foods such as coffee and many farm animals that we couldn't imagine life without. Learn how this trade shaped our palates and brought us together around the dinner table.

Program is free with park entrance ($4 per person, free for kids 12 & under).

Program takes place on the mission porch.
