Heritage begins with Foods Of Natchez
As Black History month comes to a close in America, we in Natchez continue the tradition of honoring our heritage and traditions handed down by those who came before us.
One of the most unrecognized and least talked about is that of cooking in the styles in which our fore-parents did. The art and nature of preparing a meal is one that has been passed down through the generations of African American Families and is now being experienced by many who visit Natchez for its Historic value. The Taste of Natchez today is the same as Yesterday through the work of Chef Rita.
Chef Rita and the Taste Of Heritage Cooking
We are always there in the kitchen, sitting and sharing that family history — Recently, my grandmother had her 80th birthday. My kids got to see their family tree with and make that connection. A lot people say they don’t have a big family but if they take that time to sit down with their elders they will find that they have a larger family than what they think.
