food, history, rural life, and how we connect our cultural past and future
Indigo House Celebrates 3 Centuries of Southern Women Chefs
There is room at the table! Fri, June 18th and Sat, June 19 each have one table for two ready for a reservation! Our dinner will introduce you to women in a 1770s kitchen and to the enslaved cooks in Mary Randolph’s 1810 Richmond kitchen and their savory main course of Roasted Pork. Melinda Russell wrote a cookbook to document her Civil War era culinary career while in San Francisco Abby Fisher won prizes for her sauces; part of our meal comes from their recipes. Our meal closes with a recipe by Chef Edna Lewis whose 1976 cookbook helped launch the farm to food movement. Our 4 course meal will satisfy your appetite and your curiosity.
