Classic Chefs: Edna Lewis with Cortney

This year we’ll be offering our Classic Chef’s series, featuring one influential chef each month.  Learn about how each of the featured chefs have contributed to cuisine and how we eat today. This month we’ll focus on Edna Lewis: “As an admired chef and cookbook author, Edna Lewis taught the American public to appreciate southern meals in a new way. Known as both the Grande Dame and Grande Doyenne of southern cooking, Lewis was among the first African American women from the south to write a cookbook that did not hide the author’s true name, gender or race. Combining her love of food preparation and her deep knowledge of African American history, Lewis’ legacy taught countless others the importance of traditional southern cuisine.” – National American Women’s History Museum.  Plus, we’ll cook up four of their recipes and examine their methods and techniques.  This is a hands-on class. This class is taught in our 2x4 format – we’ll split up into groups of 2 and each twosome will tackle one recipe.

On the menu:

  • Shrimp & Grits
  • Roasted Beets in Gingered Syrup
  • Simmered Greens with Cornmeal Dumplings
  • Fresh Peach Cobbler with Nutmeg Sauce
