Kitchen Conversation: They Lived Where They Worked

  • Cliveden 6401 Germantown Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19144 United States

For the past five years, Joe McGill has been conducting extreme research by sleeping in extant slave dwellings. On the night of October 29th, he will be sleeping in the Kitchen Dependency built in 1767 at Cliveden. This Kitchen Conversation will chronicle past stays with a special emphasis on the kitchens, and incorporate his findings about the Cliveden Kitchen Dependency. The evening will include a tasting buffet of South Carolina Geechee cuisine of descendants of enslaved Africans prepared by Chef Valerie Erwin, of the former Geechee Girl Cafe in Mt. Airy.
