MOFAD: African/American Making the
Nation's Table!

Sofrito Lovers,

Yesterday, I found this amazing video from the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) that explains the incredible contributions African-Americans have had on America's culinary culture.  This is a must-see video; it's brilliant and powerful!

I won't spoil anything for you, but I will say that you will be surprised of the origins of many classic American dishes and condiments.  Watch this video and then take a moment to think about and appreciate what people of African descent have given this country.  Despite the racism, discrimination, and oppression, African-Americans have given us a rich culinary legacy that is often ignored or erased.  This amazing video undoes this erasure and places this history in the forefront, where it belongs!

Watch, learn, and go taste for yourself!  ¬°Buen Provecho!
