HM’s African American Heritage Cookbook

Discover Maryland heritage foodways – the intersection of food in culture, traditions, and history – in Heritage Montgomery’s new African American Heritage Cookbook.

Patterned after traditional church cookbooks, it includes historical recipes dating to the mid-1800s as well as those collected from local African American communities. Additionally, most chapters include an introduction based on the first-hand accounts of residents sharing memories from the turn of the century that were collected in the 1970s as well as historical photographs also collected at that time.

The cookbook will be available for purchase over Heritage Days weekend at a number of African American heritage sites. Subsequently, it will also be available directly from Heritage Montgomery.
