Culture Kitchen Fridays: African Heritage Foodways in Southern Arizona

October 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Dr. Michael Engs, of Arizona Heritage Tours, brings to the kitchen the lesser-known contributions of African-descent people who first reached the Southwest in 1538 through events related to Spanish exploration, conquest, and settlement. Some came involuntarily as enslaved people, others as free adventurers and entrepreneurs. A second wave came by way of the western expansion of the United States military and left an imprint on the cuisine of the Columbian exchange. Here, Sidney Engs shares a “3 sisters stew,” while Rachel Pollack offers information on the global cultural and gastronomic influence of the Columbian exchange.
