DR. CHRISTOPHER HENDRICKS
Old Southern Cookery
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17 | 6:00 PM
Dr. Christopher Hendricks and his mother, Sue Hendricks, put a new spin on time-tested recipes from Mary Randolph’s famed 1824 bestselling cookbook, “The Virginia House-Wife” for their book, “Old Southern Cookery: Mary Randolph’s Recipes from America’s First Regional Cookbook Adapted for Today’s Kitchen.” Join us as Dr. Hendricks shares how they chose the best of the original early 19th century recipes to show how home cooks can use contemporary methods and ingredients to prepare delicious dishes.
The event will take place at Murray C. Perlman & Wayne C. Spear Preservation Center, 323 East Broughton Street. Dr. Hendricks will be signing copies of Old Southern Cookery the evening of the lecture – the book will be available for purchase at the Davenport House Museum Shop. Admission is $15.00, but attendance for HSF members is free. We will gather to socialize and enjoy a glass of wine at 5:30 p.m., and the discussion will start at 6:00 p.m.
Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. Members may RSVP by emailing Kimberly Newbold at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information or for non-member registration, visit our website at myhsf.org.
