Lena Richard and Julia Child: Two Women Who Changed Culinary History
Wednesday, March 10, 2021
5:00 p.m. Arizona time (7:00 p.m. Eastern)
Through their cookbooks, teaching, and television programs, these extraordinary women inspired generations of people to take cooking seriously. They challenged perceptions and stereotypes of women in their respective eras and made lasting contributions to culinary history. Their stories, reflective of their very different backgrounds, reveal insights about women, race, food, and culture in 20th-century America.
