From a Haunted Plate: Becoming an 18th and 19th Century Black Chef

Date: Monday, May 14, 2018

Location: William Paca House and Garden, 186 Prince George Street

Time: 6:30 pm

Join us as we discover colonial and antebellum food sourcing and cookery from the perspective of an African American chef. Michael Twitty, culinary historian and author of The Cooking Gene: A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South, discusses how foodways of West and Central Africa melded with those of indigenous people and Europeans. The lecture also examines the cooking techniques, cultural transformations, and flavor principles unique to this blend of Western cuisine by early African American chefs.

Reservations required.
