Addolorata Villa Presents: Blame it on Columbus (Harper College’s Lifelong Learning Program)

October 10, 2016 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Imagine Italian food without tomato sauce, the Irish without the potato famine, or the spicy food of India without the chili pepper. After the voyages of Columbus, plants, animals, technology, human populations and ideas were exchanged between the Old World and the New World. Rubber, silver and tobacco found their way to Europe. Sweet potatoes saved China from famine. Chocolate became a favorite beverage in Europe, and the taste for sweet things led to the sugar plantations and slavery in the New World. Join Sara Drower and see the impact of the voyages of Columbus echoed around the world. Please contact Renee at 847-215-5830 to RSVP. Click here to view the event flyer.
