History Cooks: Mrs. Lincoln's Southern Cooking | Springfield, Illinois | Visit Springfield

June 2, 2023

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum
212 N. Sixth St., Springfield




Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln were totally unlike.... Although both Lincoln’s came originally from Kentucky, they reflected two completely different Kentucky traditions. Mary was raised in the lush bluegrass region.    Mr. Lincoln grew up on the frontier, where he ate very plain food.   LLCC Chef Instructor Lakesha Jackson will demonstrate some of Mrs. Lincoln’s Southern favorites.
