Stratford Hall’s 1738 kitchen will become center stage with historical interpreter and chef, Dontavius Williams. Cooking traditional African American dishes, Williams will share stories of plantation kitchen labor and the influence of 18th-century meals on current American cuisine.

Join us for this virtual program on Tuesday, September 22 at 7pm, moderated by Dr. Kelley Fanto Deetz, Stratford Hall’s Director of Programming, Education, and Visitor Engagement.

Free but registration is required.

This event is made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.
