The Long, Tasty History of the Pasty; OLLI @ MSU Presentation

Thursday, Oct 19 from 6-7:30PM

Joseph Shelton, Editor-in-chief of Distinctly Montana Magazine, will present “From Chaucer to Centerville: the Long, Tasty History of the Pasty .”

The delectable meat-filled hand pie we call the pasty is an ancient invention, first mentioned in Chaucer and a staple of many working-class European and immigrant diets every since. But it was in Butte, America (arguably), where it was perfected. Once a mainstay of miners who would throw the crusts into the mines to appease the Tommyknockers lurking there, it remains the favorite food of the Richest Hill on Earth - and just maybe the rest of the state, too.. 

The presentation will take place on Thursday, Sept 21 from 6-7:30PM, with a social hour and refreshments starting at 5:30PM. 

Pre-registration through the OLLI website is recommended but not required. Visit our Fall OLLI page for more information and registration.
