Consuming Passions: Eating and Drinking Traditions in Ontario CoverConsuming Passions: Eating and Drinking Traditions in Ontario

The Ontario Historical Society hosted the conference “Consuming Passions: Eating and Drinking Traditions in Ontario” at the Radisson Hotel in Ottawa, May 4, 5, 6, 1989.

This conference, marking the 101st anniversary of the founding of The Ontario Historical Society, began with a workshop on researching and interpreting the food traditions of the fur traders and the military.

The formal presentations moved along a historical path – from First Nations, to pioneer settlers, to Victorian excesses and right into the 20th century. Newcomers to Ontario and their contributions to Ontario’s foodways were also explored.

Enjoy 26 papers presented at this conference from contributors including Dorothy Duncan, Glenn J. Lockwood, Dennis Carter-Edwards, Jo Marie Powers, and many others.
