History Around the Table: Pig Roast Dinner with Michael Twitty
Join FLM in celebrating Black History Month with History Around the Table and a Pig Roast with nationally recognized culinary historian and scholar, Michael T. Twitty. This event includes an pork roasted on site and exciting menu created from heriloom Southern recipes. Mr. Twitty will use nineteenth-century techniques and share his historical cooking methods with our guests. Limited seating available for the dinner.
Mr. Twitty is a living history interpreter, chef and one of the few international experts of his craft–the reconstruction of early Southern cuisine as prepared by enslaved African American cooks. He has conducted more than 200 classes and workshops, written curricula and educational programs, given lectures and performed cooking demonstrations for the Smithsonian Institution, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Carnegie-Mellon, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, Library of Congress, the Association for the Study of Food and Society and Oxford University’s Symposium on Food and Cookery.
Ticket price is $25.00 for FLM members, and $45.00 for non-members.
This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
