Home Provisioning with Leni Sorensen
Saturday April 21st 2018 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Leni Sorensen has been teaching, presenting and consulting in the field of cultural and culinary history for over 30 years. Most recently, she worked as Monticello’s African American Research Historian, where her focus drew upon the Jeffersonian kitchen, specifically on the enslaved persons who are responsible for Jefferson's reputation as a force in fine dining and sustainable food practices. Leni now works as an "independent scholar," teaching classes out of her home in Crozet, Virginia and traveling as a lecturer.
We are honored to have Leni in the Caromont Kitchen on April 21st, 2018. She will be leading a class on home provisioning, to include planning for a kitchen garden, preserving your harvest, and navigating your kitchen "as your grandmother would." She is a practicing homesteader and an expert on rural life skills and the history behind them. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
