Obliged to Cook: The Legacy of Enslaved Cooks
The voices and stories of the enslaved men and women who labored in Virginia’s 18th century kitchens are often hidden in their recipes and oral history. Their legacy is found in the lasting presence of African-American foodways in American cuisine.
Visitors are invited to participate in a living history Forgotten Road Tour of buildings where Sully’s enslaved community lived and worked over 200 years ago. Visit the open hearth kitchen to see traditional recipes, created by enslaved cooks, handed down through hundreds of years. Experience an 18th century wash day in the laundry, and learn about herbal cures at the slave quarter.
