Honoring Martin Luther King Through Cuisine: Heritage Through Food in Winston-Salem

Honoring Martin Luther King Through Cuisine: Heritage Through Food in Winston-Salem

Food is the heritage of the South and much of that heritage is attributed to the Black Southern Belle. One of those Black Southern Belles honoring this heritage is Ashley Lebelle, from Winston-Salem and owner of The Table Experience. With food in her DNA, she is the daughter of the Forsythe Seafood Legacy, and is bringing a modern twist on southern food heritage through pop up dinners. This winter, she hosted “A King Dinner” honoring Civil Rights and American hero, Martin Luther King. Check out the expertly curated menu and decor designed to honor MLK and the heritage of soul food, civil rights, and black southern culture below.

Honoring Martin Luther King Through Cuisine: Heritage Through Food in Winston-Salem

Southern Menu Inspiration: Want to recreate this dinner at home? Pick a few items from this menu or hire Ashley Lebelle to cater your next private event.

Florals and Foliage: We adore the southern-inspired florals from this dinner party. Nothing like magnolia leaves a centerpiece.

Dreaming It Up: A paper table linen is a great opportunity to create an interactive experience for guests to highlight their dreams and aspirations while dining .

Dessert Display: This dessert display is truly fit for a king. Dessert always tastes better in a beautiful dish.

Classic With a Twist: This unique play on the meat and three holy trinity of fried chicken, greens and sweet potatoes is a beautifully executed modern take on a classic Sunday meal.

Southern Hostess: This vintage look is the perfect ensemble for a southern hostess and a nod to the style of the Civil Rights era.

Art Makes a Party: This photo of the King family is a beautiful way to decorate the table in honor of MLK.

Custom Menu Cards: These custom menu cards are the perfect party favor and addition to add to a photo album or memory book.
