A culinary lineage of the African American Diaspora January 15th- Margaret Place Hotel
A seat at my ancestors table.
An immersive journey into the foods that shaped America's culinary history. SOUL will dive headfirst into the cuisine developed by captive Africans and their descendants in the 17th and 18th century. This culinary essay intends to change the narrative regarding "slave food" by elevating and refining dishes created from crops bought over on ships that bore human cargo along with the scraps, offal, and whatever else the captives could use to supplement their scarce diet.
On January 15th I invite you to a seat at my ancestors table to celebrate their contributions to the culinary arts and revel in what their humble beginnings has evolved into.
The six course tasting menu is $88 per person Optional cocktail pairing $44 per person
