“The Changing Signatures of Carolina Cuisine”
Dr. David Shields, Roy Ritchie Sr Distinguished Fellow at the Huntington Library; Carolina Distinguished Professor at the Univ. of South Carolina, and Chair of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation.
Join us for another online lecture where David Shields, Ph.D., who is the Roy Ritchie Sr Distinguished Fellow at the Huntington Library; a Carolina Distinguished Professor at the Univ. of South Carolina, and Chair of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation, will discuss his newly released book titled “Taste the State: South Carolina Signature Food, Recipes, and their Stories” with co-author Kevin Mitchell. During this talk, Shields will review the key dishes of South Carolina cookery, like the foods that signaled our identity at various points since 1776, and recognize menus that epitomize Carolina cooking in 1840, 1880, 1920, and 1960. He will share historical findings while researching for the book and reflect on why certain once central dishes such as baked tanya, roasted rice birds, groundnut cakes, terrapin soup, rice field turkey, benne & hominy, pumpkin chips, and rice bread have passed into culinary purgatory, scarcely remembered.
This event will take place over Zoom. Registrants will receive a Zoom link for the event via email.
