Harriott’s descendants settled throughout the Caribbean and over the subsequent centuries became one of the leading families in the salt-production industry in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They reside in the Caribbean to this day. Georgia Belk, a 13th-generation descendant of Thomas Harriott, has been working to keep island traditions alive by bringing traditional fermented ginger beer back into the mainstream. In this enlightening talk, Ms. Belk interweaves colonial history, family lore and the culinary past to create a fascinating portrait of brewing and living in the Caribbean.RSVP Here
