I’m an event and video producer, writer, occasional baker, and “foodlorist.” I was born in Washington, DC and in the AME church. I now attend a Unitarian Church. My family roots are very deep in the state of Virginia so I consider myself a southerner. I’m a member of the Southern Foodways Alliance and I was involved in the launch of Eatonville Restaurant‘s Food and Folklore series which I hosted from it’s first event in November 2009 to April 2010. Yes, I’m a “Zora-head.” [ref. author, folklorist, anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston]
And yes, that’s my coconut cake in the pic. Found the recipe on-line. It’s from the Shubox Cafe in Cedar Grove, NJ. It is known as Awesome Coconut Cake. I like a buttercream frosting on mine and fresh crushed pineapple (drained) between the layers.
