The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County has a delicious Sunday morning planned for the community! From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, the HCSCC hosts a “Foods of the Bible” fundraiser for “Illuminating the Word: The Saint Johns Bible” exhibition at the Hjemkomst Center.
HCSCC Executive Director Maureen Kelly Jonason says “the brunch is based of food from the Bible, which means most of the foods are from the Middle East.”
The main foods that will be served are roast lamb, fish, assorted salads, and warmed milk and honey to drink.
“There will be no chocolate or sugar being served because those two items weren’t discovered in the Middle East at that time,” Jonason says.
Kelly Womback, resident chef at the Hjemkomst Center’s Rex Cafe did extensive research to make the perfect menu for such a special event.
“Foods of the Bible” includes access to the exhibit, which is open from 10:30-5:00pm on Sunday. The brunch is nearly sold out, so get your tickets today! Tickets are $25 and are available on Eventbrite. Additional donations are welcome.
The Saint John’s Bible exhibit displays 68 original folios of the Bible and is the HCSCC’s largest exhibition the museum has hosted to date.
Here are a few more events coming up at the HCSCC:
