The original calendar post will maintain the current and future virtual talks listing and other materials Calendar of virtual talks. This post is to "archive" all (including not taped) virtual talks on the events list from the past months - 684 talks. Many talks are not taped, so only a third of the talks have tapes to view and marked in red as Tape.

Topics lists of past taped talks and upcoming ones in seperate posts: Beverages // Bread, flour, ovens // British foodways // Cookbooks, Manuscripts // Hearth cooking // Holiday Christmas // Holidays Nv,Dec // Indigenous foodways // Medieval foods, gardens // Tea and Prohibition
