A Historical View on German-American Culture in the San Francisco Bay Area – Presentation at Stanford University

“Beyond Beer, Brats, and Sauerkraut: German Culinary Cultures in San FRANCISCO between the Gold Rush and World War II “

Historian Dr. Leonard Schmieding is working on a book on German immigrants in Northern California between the Gold Rush and World War II.  In his presentation at Stanford on May 6, 2014, you can hear how these Germans, whilst trying to acquaint themselves with their new culture also tried to preserve their German heritage by ‘staying German’ through their  food and drink.

The presentation is hosted by the “Food and Sustenance Workshop” at Stanford University, and is geared towards a general audience. Dr. Schmieding welcomes all members of the German-American community of the Bay Area, to join in an exchange and discussion on the rich and long history of Germans in the Bay Area.

The Presentation is FREE, German fare will be served, RSVP is NEEDED !    RSVP HERE
