If there is a silver lining to the present challenges, it is in that I’m now living onsite to the novel’s setting and surrounded by its history. This has opened up fresh opportunities for research, including an unexpected one that proved as delicious as it was informative. I speak, of course, of culinary historian Joyce White’s recent presentation of “A Taste of Maryland” at the historic Port Tobacco Courthouse, (which also happens to be one of the locations featured in PIRATES’ MOON!)
At the program’s conclusion, Joyce offered a sampling of historic Maryland fare. It was all scrumptious, but my hands-down favorite was White Potato Pie. Think pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie, substituting white potatoes but using the same spices. The result is a lighter taste yet just as delicious. Joyce made the pie recipe into small tarts, perfect finger food for entertaining.
Wishing you the all the best,
