Fighting Poverty with Passion

Field Report: Southern Food and Beverage Museum

Happy Mardi Gras! 

For this month’s kids program at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum I led a mini king cake decorating workshop. We made our own icing, decorated the cakes with sprinkles and learned a bit about the king cake tradition.

If you’d like to learn more about king cake (if you’re in New Orleans, I’m sure you’ve eaten A LOT already!) check out NittyGrits.org. Nitty Grits is a new project from SoFAB. It’s an online international culinary dictionary that  we launched on Twelfth Night with the King Cake entry. I’ve been adding new entries each day, so it’s been quite a fun project for me.

We’re looking for more people to get involved and contribute content, so email NittyGrits@southernfood.org if you’re interested.
