AmRev360: Taste the Revolution with Chef Walter StaibDecember 18, 2020
When visiting the Revolutionary sites of historic Philadelphia, how could you pass up a chance to dine where George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and many more Founders once dined? For decades, a trip to Old City was not complete without a meal at City Tavern Restaurant. And the man behind it for the last 26 years was Chef Walter Staib, Emmy Award-winning TV host of A Taste of History, James Beard-nominated chef, and culinary historian.
Sadly, on Nov. 2, Chef Staib announced the closure of City Tavern. Chef Staib joined the latest episode of the Museum's AmRev360 series, hosted by President & CEO Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, to discuss how a chef from Germany fell in love with colonial American cuisine, what's next for himself and City Tavern, and his Emmy Award-winning TV show, A Taste of History.
Chef Staib's cookbooks, full seasons of A Taste of History, and pewter and ceramic tableware are available for purchase online. Learn more about the recipes and destinations featured in A Taste of History.
AmRev360 features lively conversations on the American Revolution from all angles between Stephenson and a broad slate of dynamic guests, including authors, actors, community leaders, and more.
