Eating Our Words: Origins of Sundry Culinary Terms

How is someone "worth his salt?" Where's the ham in hamburger? How is "cheesecake" both a dessert and an image of a scantily clad woman? If you think "easy as pie" is simple,have you ever tried to make one?
Eating Our Words is a discussion on the many terms and
expressions that make reference to food and eating. We'll explore history and customs with an eye on food preparation, food fads, and the ways in which food appears in our vocabulary.
Smith is the writer and host of the popular radio series "Chrysti the Wordsmith," which explores the rich and ever-changing words in our English language - the history behind them, how we use them and how we change them.

Please join us for this free presentation on Tuesday, March 25th at noon at Miles Community College in room 106, and again at 7:00 p.m. at the Custer County Art and Heritage Center.
