GHOST IN THE KITCHEN
James Hemings is America’s culinary founding father, but his achievements have been largely unrecognized because he was the enslaved property of Thomas Jefferson. “The Ghost in America’s Kitchen” is about America’s unknown Founding Foodie, James Hemings, as told by modern culinary sage, Chef Ashbell McElveen. Ashbell’s proprietary research and wisdom add texture to this little-known story that can’t be found anywhere else. James Hemings is a lost African American hero who is responsible for bringing French Fries, Ice Cream, Crew Brulee, Mac & Cheese, Whipped Cream and many other common foods to the United States.
