Our conversation will introduce you to an amazing group of women; we begin in a 1770s South Carolina kitchen and then to the 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. In 1880s San Francisco, Abby Fisher won prizes for her sauces; part of our meal comes from their recipes. Our evening closes with a recipe by Chef Edna Lewis whose 1976 cookbook helped launch the farm-to-table movement. Our 4 courses will satisfy your appetite and your curiosity.
