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.

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

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

Great MLK Day
PASCHAL'S Motor Hotel and Restaurant also known as the unofficial head quarter s to the civil rights movment .
PASCHAL'S opened by brothers Robert and James Paschal in 1947 in Atlanta Ga. In 1959 The brothers moved from the original building into a larger location just across the street .
PASCHAL'S was known to have some of the best soul food in Atlanta which gained the brothers much regional and national recognition. The restaurant played host to many prominent blacks as well as whites due to PASCHAL'S being one the first restaurants to allow blacks as well as white customers to sit in the same dinning together at a time when that was against the law in many places
Story goes,
One day, brother James Paschal was approached by a young man and asked if he could bring his team members to the restaurant to eat , meet, rest, plan, and strategize,the young man explained that he didn't have any money to pay but he wanted to start a coalition .That young man was Dr martin Luther King.
The brothers felt they could not refuse the young man and in early 1962 they set aside a meeting room for Martin Luther King and his team. Here the team began to lay the fundamental ground work for the civil rights movement .The coalition met in PASCHAL'S for many of there meetings and planed historic events such as the 1964 march on Washington....to this day many of the surviving civil rights leaders and people that played a roll have dubbed PASCHAL'S as the unofficial head quarters to the civil rights movement.

In 1996 the brothers sold the old restaurant to Clark Atlanta , the building was used for dorms and meeting space ..but the it has been closed since the early 2000's and slated for demolition.

There is a new PASCHAL'S restaurant and lounge just a few blocks from the original sites there is also two other restaurants including one in the Atlanta Airport Both brothers has since past, Robert in 1997 and James in 2008...These brothers played a great role in history of this country just by following their hearts and doing what god had planned for them .

Let's try this again, shall we? Today. Food. Eating. Life. Whatever. This is a sort of chef's salad sitch with mesclun, arugula, radish, carrots, currants, red cabbage, potatoes, ham, and a damn-fine boiled egg (if I do say so myself). Like many historic salads of note, this one has roots in fine hotel dining (1940's Ritz Carlton, @epicurious tells me).

Back to the grind today. It's not so rough coming back from a vaycay when you have a great #commuteread to dig into. After all my reading about Japan, I'm getting in to some American culinary history. Did you know black pepper is antimicrobial?? Eight Flavors by @fourpoundsflour is full of fascinating facts like that. HAPPY MONDAY SNACKERS! 😉🍵📚

The brain is a powerful tool. It's up to you what you feed it and manage it. Consume what is important to you and void out the junk. In this down time I aim to be productive with tending to recovering smoothly. Thinking positive. Being here for Ashton. Last goal is re-writing all my culinary notes. In any field to be the best you have to always have the mindset of what can I learn today and what can I do better? #Consumeknowledge #Methods #Cookingterms #Culinaryhistory #Cooklife #Journaling #Recovery #Goals #Passion #Ingredients #Whatisyourwhy #Purpose #Genuine #Food #ChefOneDay #Studentfirst #MomAlways #MeAllDayEveryday

"And it wasn’t just her own grandma who instilled within her a deep appreciation for immigrant foods and the stories behind them. Growing up in Queens meant that almost every time [Caroline] Shin went over to a friend’s house for dinner, she’d have access to a new and different ethnic cuisine. She intuitively realized that for immigrant women, many of whom found themselves thrust into domestic roles, the relationship between home cooking and storytelling was nearly one and the same."

We Instagram pad thai, tacos, pizza, ramen, hamburgers, French fries, Korean BBQ, spaghetti, and they're so damn tasty and foodporn-perfect, right? Well, these are immigrant contributions to NYC and America. And for that, 🙏 And to my own granny and other grandmas who have quietly assumed their gendered responsibilities of feeding us the most delicious home cooked foods, and passing down our cultural heritage, 🙏🙏❤️❤️ Oh, and also, yaaassss, Queens 🗽🙏❤️Read the article at link in bio!! #LoveMyGranny #ImmigrantsMakeAmericaDelicious #NYC

"Shepherds in the Cave" The documentary that followed our workshop and the shepherding community, screened in Paris yesterday, and we love the project that was created to involve local students. "The subject of painting and fresco restoration in Shepherds in the Cave has found a perfect home at this #documentary #filmfestival given the constant reminders and references to painters everywhere we look. The Moulin de la Gallette, which sits right beside the Cine XIII Theatre, was a subject for Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Picasso, as well as a party headquarters for Montmartre artists. And for this year's festival, high school students were commissioned to paint pictures on their impressions of the films being screened at Ethnografilm... Messors Tonio Crenanza Emar Laborante http://www.ethnografilm.com/" This featured work by a Parisian student we are trying to get the name for as credit- and the subject of the work is Emanuele Moramarco, a young Puglian shepherd & student and many generations of family friends. @scarangela @shepherdsinthecave @creanzaoliveoil @ornellasornellas #languageoffood #conservation #documentary #filmmaking #filmfestival #culturalheritage #culinaryhistory #rupestrian #puglianpoet #toniocreanza #cheesemaking #sheep #shepherding #anthropology #puglia #italy #italytoday #paris #creatingcommunity #landscaperestoration #caveculture #roadtrip #zioraffaelle Directed by Anthony Grieco and edited by Ornella Signigaglia

It's true! Cooking with Granny is an homage to my own North Korean refugee granny (that story's in our pork belly episode featuring the two cutest best friends you'll ever see 👵🏼👵🏼) and it's a love letter to my home town of Queens, NYC, the delicious concrete jungle that immigrant dreams are made of. - Caroline @caroline_newyork
