Virtual: African-American Heritage Foodways in New York-Discovering a Different Root February 10

Lecture by Lavada Nahon, Culinary Historian and Independent Scholar

For many people the idea of African American foodways equals ‘Soul Food’ or southern cooking. Before the great migration of the 19th century, the foodways of Blacks in New York were based on the culinary traditions of the Dutch and indigenous people as much as they were British or African. Differences in climate also meant different foods were grown or available for foraging. Black History Month gives us an opportunity to look at New York’s colonial period and ponder a different root to our food lineage. Culinary historian, Lavada Nahon will share information about the colonial and early new nation periods, highlighting Dutch and indigenous foodways, the work of enslaved and free cooks, and their impact on our current food culture that you can enjoy at home.
