A visit with 90 year old Mrs Elsie Della Franca is never left empty handed. The white beans on the right she called Fagoli Spagnoli & the beautifully pattern beans on the left she couldn't recall. As you can imagine, Fagoli Spagnoli had quite the tale of their origin. Seeds of family story & place. #karrihillbuckwheat #pembertonwa #culinaryhistory

There are thousands of stories buried in our own records. Our colleague in Archives, Sarah Nerney, unearthed the story of Lena Richard, a rising star in the culinary world who was persuaded to spend a few years showing off her talents in Williamsburg in the 1940s.
Click link in profile to read the story of a remarkable woman who began as a domestic cook and ended up a nationally known chef with a frozen foods line, a cookbook, a television show, and diners willing to cross the segregation line to eat at her establishments.

Culinary lore has it that sauce beárnaise was created by the same chef who invented pommes soufflées. Chef Collinet, this Beef Tenderloin is for you. #culinaryhistory #beeftenderloin

A recent addition: Lobster Caponata with Artichokes alla Giudia & Coral. "Alla giudia" means in the Jewish style, and refers to fried artichokes, one of the best known Roman-Jewish foods. || #nyc #delposto #culinaryhistory

Finally got myself a library card.!! Time to bulk up on some knowledge #socialactivism #culinaryhistory

Our long-time followers know how much we love this set of 1831 lithographs (published in Baltimore) of people formed from objects. This is the "Fruit seller." We have previously posted the librarian and the conchologist, but this one seemed appropriate for the #CHAViC15 summer seminar this week -- love that focus on food! #culinaryhistory


Our Shrimp & Grits is creamy, cheesy and has a kiss of lemon. Major delish.

Thanks to @blueheronbooks for selling the cutest wooden Anne figures at yesterday's L.M. Montgomery and War event!

Friday Mornings cry out loud for Eggs Benedict ! Here's a pretty one we captured... Did you know - In 1894, Lemuel Benedict, a Wall Street broker, who was suffering from a hangover, ordered“some buttered toast, crisp bacon, two poached eggs, and a hooker of hollandaise sauce” at the Waldorf Hotel in New York.

The first paragraph of _The Taste of Country Cooking_. Edna Lewis published this book in 1976. It is a treasure, a mixture of memoirs and recipes.
Her memories of Freetown are beautiful and tender, but never saccharine. After all, it is a book that includes the menu and recipes for an "Emancipation Day Dinner," celebrating an emancipation that occurred in the recent past. "My grandmother," Lewis wrote, "had been a brick mason as a slave--purchased for the sum of $950 by a rich landowner ..." The Emancipation Day dinner included a Guinea fowl casserole, wild rice and wild grapes, and a simple plum tart. #ednalewis #tasteofsoutherncooking #culinaryhistory #cookbook #bookworm

Kitchen Legends t-shirt

There are people, places and events that have defined our history and food has been at the core of many of these moments in time. Our culinary history runs very deep in this country: from shaping policies in Washington to saving lives on the battle fields during war, to launching civil rights movements.

From the birth of this nation, minorities have been at the forefront of shaping this nations culinary landscape . Unfortunately, history have forgotten the roles chefs of color have played in the culinary industry. To pay homage to these chefs, we are creating the Kitchen Legends line of apparel. This is a line of t-shirts that will tell the stories of those forgotten people, places and events in our culinary history…

Today would have been Julia’s 105th birthday and as she often wore a homemade birthday hat for the occasion, we’re sharing this photo from 1964 when her hat was on the smaller side, but as colorful as Julia herself. Happy birthday, Julia! (Photo: Schlesinger Library, used with permission) #CelebrateJuliaChild #juliachild

Thank you @culhistcanada for sharing your experience at the luncheon in Norval! 🌸👩🏻‍🍳 | 📸: @culhistcanada

In celebration of Julia’s 105th birthday (tomorrow!), Paula Johnson, Curator for the Division of Work & Industry at the National Museum of American History, wrote about the Museum’s latest acquisition for FOOD: Transforming the American Table, 1950-2000, the exhibit that features Julia’s home kitchen. Thanks to a donation from @surlatable founder Shirley Collins, the Museum is now home to three hand-painted, ceramic paté weights created by Seattle artist Margi Beyers. Julia was an early supporter of Collins and her cookware company, and over the years she participated in a number of cooking demonstrations, book signings, talks, and fundraisers. In Johnson’s piece, she shares Collins’ memories of working with Julia, and reflects on Julia’s talent for making classic French dishes like paté accessible to her readers. For more on Julia’s legacy and the paté molds, read Johnson’s blog on the Museum web site (Photo: Julia Child with Shirley Collins at the Sur La Table store in Seattle.

You can barely make out the faded name now. But for 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014 this was the best restaurant in the world. Chef Redzepi has since moved on to Mexico. But it felt special to stand on this hallowed ground where culinary history was made. RIP, NOMA.

our food traditions reveal stories of the past
and, if you listen closely, lessons for the future. .

The humble bao or steamed bun has a rather colourful history being older than the emperors of the Qin dynasty. That makes it over 2000 years old! And yet, the bao is perhaps the most adaptable and modern of Chinese culinary dishes. It can be relished on the go as street food or as an accompaniment to a more traditional meal. We recommend bringing the kids over to go wowzy over baozi.
