The African Roots of American Cuisine
African American food ways can be traced back to Africa, along the stretches of Olduvai Gorge, from which humans had their common origin and where the first meals were eaten. In this lecture, Dr. Martha Bireda will discuss the journey of African foods from the village, the Middle Passage, into the cabins of the enslaved, kitchens of the Big House and on to the White House.
