The Food

Our Inspiration: One of America's original cuisines

During the Industrial Revolution, African Americans preserved their traditions by putting love and passion into the food they created. This was one of America’s original cuisines—harvested and prepared by slaves on plantations—that nurtured America’s soul and shaped her emerging identity.
