Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Liz Williams on Heirloom Meals Radio

Liz Williams is another kindred spirit.  Liz grew up in food centric New Orleans where she experienced the Louisianan tastes as well as the Sicilian.  Her mom is Sicilian. An interesting factoid that Liz shared is New Orleans has a large Sicilian population.  She explained that there was a period in the late 1800's/early 1900's that Sicilians emigrated to New Orleans.  At the time, New Orleans had the 2nd largest Sicilian-speaking population after Palermo.  This is why I love Heirloom Meals.  I am so priveleged to hear these stories.

Liz had an interesting career journey.  But her heart and love was the food of the South.  Through a confluence of events, Liz began a regional museum to represent the food of the south where she felt the melding of African, European, and Native American was unique relative to the rest of the US. 

The Southern Food and Beverage Museum is a living history museum that documents and celebrates the food and drink of America,

I am certain you will enjoy Liz as much as I did.
