Monticello Foodways talk/demonstration at the Smithsonian USDA in DC

Today I’m off to DC for tomorrow’s talk and demo at the Smithsonian/Monticello/USDA Farmer’s Market. (12th and Jefferson at the National Mall) From 11 am to 1:30 pm I will be talking about the vegetable gardens of the enslaved community at Monticello over the years of the early 19th century. I’ve made a big pot of vegetable stew for tastes and we will have typical veggies of the time on display.
