Join Elizabeth Williams, president and founder of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, for a book talk on her recent cookbook, Nana’s Creole Italian Table: Recipes and Stories from Sicilian New Orleans. In it, she shares the stories of Sicilian immigrants and their communities through the lens of food, exploring the ways traditional Sicilian dishes such as pasta and olive salad became a part of the existing food culture in New Orleans. During the presentation, she will prepare an Italian-Creole favorite – butternut squash sauce for pasta. Tasting samples will be provided.
Elizabeth has a weekly podcast, Tip of the Tongue, about the food, drink, and culture of New Orleans and is the author of several books and articles about foodways in New Orleans and the South.
A book signing will follow the presentation. Registration is required. Call (225) 622-3339 to sign up.
