TONIGHT at 7 p.m. at Tryon Palace in New Bern, NC I will be doing a presentation with food and book sales free and open to the public. Taking the audience through a taste test of history from West and Central Africa to North Carolina to freedom, we will have a lively discussion of our culinary past.
