Africa In Our Kitchens: 
Open-Air Barbecue Sampler

Explore the tastes of 18th century barbecue, and learn how enslaved African-Americans shaped American cuisine. Culinary historian and interpreter Michael Twitty will roast an entire sheep over an open pit, while explaining how “the foodways of the enslaved have had a profound influence on the flavors that persist in American recipes, intrinsically linking African culture with our present understanding of traditional food.” Prepaid reservations are required.
