(p.49) 4 The Foods They Ate
Eating In the Side Room

Mark S. Warner

University Press of Florida

Chapter 4 explores the foods the families ate--at least in terms of foods preserved in the archaeological record. What is missing, of course, are the methods used to cook the meats, the side dishes that accompanied them, knowing the family routines of who was busy in the kitchen and who helped with clean-up. The bones, scales, and shells we recovered, however, do have a story to tell. It is a story that places the eating habits of these two families firmly within broader African American food traditions and, to some extent, mass consumer culture.
