Mac and cheese

Kitchen Witchery — September Pagan Challenge #5.

I made mac’n’cheese for lunch today and remembered, from watching High on the Hog on Netflix with Stephen Satterfield, that the recipe was perfected by James Hemings, the enslaved chef to Thomas Jefferson. Hemings was clearly a culinary genius, and I spoke his name with gratitude as I ate my mac’n’cheese.

There are no paintings of James Hemings, so the second picture is of the kitchen where he worked.
