Step into colonial times with Chef Walter Staib as he prepares authentic 18th-century meals that our very own Ben Franklin would have dined on. Join Chef Staib and his team as they present a host of savory and sweet recipes and discuss the influences of early American cuisine. Taste small plates filled with mushroom toast and beef pie turnovers, try signature cocktails such as A Very Old Fashioned and a Champagne Shrub, and round out your palate with one of many featured sweets including syllabub, a whipped cream dessert with fresh berries. All this and more on all three floors of Staib’s renowned City Tavern, in Old City, Philadelphia!
Watch A Taste of History on Saturdays at noon on WHYY-TV.
