Having attended the July “Territorial Fare!” celebration of foodways at the Historic Arkansas Museum — when German and Scottish foods and folk were the subjects — I can heartily recommend that you buy tickets to the November event, "The Legacy of African Americans."

Be forewarned: Tickets ($45) for the Nov. 15 dinner go on sale at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15, and will sell out faster than free tickets and airfare to “Hamilton” on Broadway would.

November’s dinner will focus on the contributions of African Americans to American cuisine during the colonial and antebellum periods. Famed retired chef Yvette Brady (of the late, great 1620 Restaurant) and Tim Morton of Cache Restaurant will create a meal drawn from research into historic recipes. The meal is the last of the 2018 series.

At the July meal, HAM Director Swannee Bennett gave a talk in the historic Hinderliter Grog Shop on the German immigrants who created the tavern, the oldest commercial building in Little Rock; Stone Throw Brewery’s Ian Beard gave a talk on Arkansas’s earliest brewers and served up a cider of his making from an old recipe; and chefs Shanna Merriwether and Capi Peck of Trio’s served a scrumptious dinner that included cock-a-leekie soup. November’s should also be a unique and delicious way to learn about Arkansas history.
