Happy Thanksgiving Weekend.

November 29, 2013


Here is Maurice Vellekoop’s commission from The Boston Globe for an article titled, “Thanksgiving, or how to eat American politics,” by Rachel Laudan, author of “Cuisine and Empire: Cooking in World History”. Her piece traces the evolution of the ‘traditional’ turkey dinner as a kind of populist reaction against stuffy, aristocratic, European modes of dining. Sarah Josepha Hale, editor of Godey’s Lady’s Book (pictured bottom left) democratically proposed inviting children to join adults in a simple, nutritious meal that was a reaction against the fancy sauces and elaborate molded desserts beloved of monarchs across the Atlantic. It was she who persuaded Abraham Lincoln to declare Thanksgiving a national holiday 150 years ago.
