History Lectures

I offer lectures on food history; including Mary Randolph and the enslaved cooks in her Virginia kitchens; the enslaved chefs in the kitchens at Jefferson’s Monticello; and on dining in Early Federal Washington DC, among other food related topics.

I lead hands-on culinary workshops at historic house sites and give demonstrations on hearth and open fire for museum guides/docents and the public.

Consultations are charged by the hour.

Contact me for fees (plus lodging and mileage) for lectures and consultation.
