Seasonal Soul Food: A Celebration of Chef Edna Lewis
Edna Lewis was born in a small settlement called Freetown in 1916, one of eight children. The farm had been granted to her grandfather, a freed slave. Growing, gathering and preparing food was more than just sustenance for the family; it was a form of entertainment.  In her cookbook, "A Taste of Country Cooking" Edna recalls her childhood memories of seasonal celebrations with her family through recipes, which read like love letters.
The culinary team at Inspiration Kitchen is preparing a 4 course menu inspired by the work of Edna Lewis and wine and beer will be served, as well.
Chef Kocoa Scott-Winbush and 4 guest performers will read excerpts of Chef Edna's writings from two of her highly acclaimed cookbooks, "The Taste of Country Cooking" and "In Pursuit of Flavor". Readings will be paired with the violin virtuosity of Samuel "Savoirfaire" Williams, a local, classically trained jazz violinist.

The proceeds of this unique event will benefit The Sugar Beet Co-op, a volunteer organization that provides educational experiences that celebrate local food.  From canning classes to The Edible Garden Tour, The Sugar Beet Co-op has reached over 3000 people in 18 months with positive and practical information about sustainable food choices that support local farmers, strengthens our community and feeds our bodies and souls.
