Dougherty Arts Center presents Lena Richard and Julia Child: Two Women Who Changed Culinary History
Through their cookbooks, teaching, and television programs, Lena Richard and Julia Child inspired generations of people to take cooking seriously. They challenged perceptions and stereotypes of women in their respective eras and made lasting contributions to culinary history. Their stories, reflective of their very different backgrounds, reveal insights about women, race, food, and culture in 20th-century America.
This event will feature Paula Johnson, Curator, National Museum of American History, and Ashley Rose Young, PhD, Historian, National Museum of American History.
