To commemorate Black History Month, Chef Jesse will demonstrate how to cook Brunswick stew and hoe cakes.
Hoe cakes were a convenient, filling food used by slaves in the South to sustain them in the fields as they worked. These traditional Southern treats go by other names as well. Johnny cakes, or “Journey” cakes meant the same thing.
Brunswick stew is usually a tomato-based stew, containing various types of lima beans/butter beans, corn, okra, and other vegetables, and one or more types of meat. Originally, it was small game such as squirrel, rabbit, or possum meat, but chicken is most common today.
Learn how to make these great Southern dishes and learn of their history from Chef Jesse Jones.
