Author Book Talk and Signing From tomato pies and pork roll, to custard cones and salt water taffy, take a mouthwatering historical tour of the Jersey Shore's traditional dishes and restaurants. Karen Schnitzspahn will discuss her new book Jersey Shore Food History: Victorian Feasts to Boardwalk Treats. The treats we enjoy today are part of a long tradition dating from the Victorian era, when big oceanfront hotels served elaborate meals to hungry visitors. From Cape May to Sandy Hook, our shore offers a movable feast of diverse restaurants and iconic boardwalk treats. Presented with The Long Branch Historical Association, this program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. Weds., May 29th @ 7:00 PM @ Main
