James Hemings: Ghost in America’s Kitchen | Anthony Werhun & Ashbell McElveen Interview (2022) by Big Gold Belt Media
If you’ve ever eaten macaroni and cheese, French fries, or ice cream, you’ve enjoyed the contributions of James Hemings. Ghost in America’s Kitchen explores the incredibly life story, achievements, and erasure of America’s culinary founding father. Even lesser known is the fact that he was also the brother-in-law and slave to Thomas Jefferson. Ashbell McElveen (“Weekend Today”), a modern culinary giant, has dedicated his life to creating fine food and uncovering one of the greatest American stories that has not been told. The story of James Hemings, and Chef Ashbell’s inspired quest to tell it, will captivate foodies, intrigue historians, and give every American a greater appreciation for the French fries on their plate.
Directed by Anthony Werhun and featuring Ashbell McElveen, Michael Twitty, and Jacques Pepin.
