The Chosen Few and Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) present the 8th annual Through the Eyes of Art, a Black History Month celebration. The event brings together artists, community leaders, politicians, and tastemakers from across the state of Washington to celebrate the Black experience.
This year’s theme was The Cookout, and throughout February, we immersed ourselves in programming that explores amazing soul food cuisine, spotlights Seattle’s Black-owned food establishments, and dives deeper into issues related to health and wellness, food justice and access.
This past Sunday, February 28, we wrapped up our Through the Eyes of Art, a Black History Month celebration with an online cookalong featuring special guest chef Danielle Alex, a Pacific Northwest native who launched her own business, becoming a private chef for celebrities like Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, NBA star Carmelo Anthony, former Seahawks star Shaun Alexander, and more. She has been featured on the Food Network, The Today Show, and has a blog called Diversity Kitchen.
Grab these chicken & waffles ingredients and check out the Facebook Live video embedded above for an easy-to-follow cookalong featuring some soul food favorites!
