Please join Chef and author Angela Marcellino, as she presents her new cookbook: The True Natives of Cape Cod Massachusetts and their Food Ways. The recipes tell the story of America starting from when the People of the First Light first walked the land, now known as Cape Cod, to when the English settlers arrived.
The author presents stories of her ancestors of the Portuguese Diaspora and Seychelles Islands, driven by the whaling industry to the shores of New Bedford and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The recipes are used as a metaphor to examine the author’s own cultural and ethnic identity and personal journey.
Centered in Mashpee, one of the last and largest declared Indian districts of Massachusetts, incorporated into a town in 1870, Angela also shares stories of her legacy as a member of the Peters family and their ties to the Kennedy family. Her grandfather represented the Indian town for over thirty-seven years, and the family has deep commitment to the survival of this unique community.
Enjoy a food tasting, and books will be available for purchase and to be signed by the author.
