Love history? Love to cook? Join us for our free monthly cooking history demonstration this September!

What is the “Nuevo South”? Why does it matter? And what does it taste like? On September 16th, we will welcome chef and author Sandra Gutiérrez into the demonstration kitchen here at the National Museum of American History to teach us about the new Southern-Latino table.

Sandra was born in Philadelphia, to Guatemalan parents, and raised in Guatemala. She moved to North Carolina from Canada in 1985. By 1996, she discovered that as more Latinos moved to the South, a new food pathway emerged. At this cooking demonstration, we will discuss migration, activism, and the culinary movements in the Nuevo South.

After the demo, Sandra will be available to answer questions and sign copies of her book, «The New Southern-Latino Table,» which will be available for purchase onsite.

This program is free to attend, no tickets required.

This program is co-sponsored with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, with funding provided by the Latino Initiatives Pool, a federal pool administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center.

Please note: there are no food tastings at Cooking Up History programs, just food history! If you do get hungry however, the museum has a cafeteria on the lower level that serves up tasty food inspired by different American culinary traditions.
