MANGANO, THE HISTORY CHANNEL AND EXECUTIVE CHEF PROVIDE CULINARY SAMPLES OF AMERICA’S HISTORY

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano welcomed Dr. Libby O’Connell, Chief Historian of the History Channel, to the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building where Dr. O’Connell debuted her new book, The American Plate: A Culinary History in 100 Bites. The public in attendance along with living historians from various eras, and Long Island Social Studies teachers were provided cuisine samples from Thomas Jefferson’s recipe for mac and cheese to sampling oysters, the “fast food” of Long Island Native Americans. The recipes, all prepared by Oheka Castle’s Executive Chef Christopher James Cappello and staff, provided a culinary tour of Dr. O’Connell’s book.

County Executive Mangano stated, “More than Thanksgiving turkey and gravy, today our American plate allows us to reflect on our memories of those no longer here but whose love is still found in the recipes they left behind and the food they graciously served us.”
