Women Who Made the Food of New Orleans

Southern Food and Beverage Museum

From the brunch invented by French Market restaurateur Elizabeth Kettenring in the 1880s, to the late 1930s’ cookbook of Lena Richard, an African American woman, who gained attention as a caterer, television host, and entrepreneur, to many others who cook and create attention to food, New Orleans women have been a part of why so many people love to visit the city and also refuse to leave.  This exhibition brings attention to printed sources and photographs of women in New Orleans kitchens.
