The south’s premier culinary research center will open its doors for the first time on Thursday, Oct. 6.
Southern Food & Beverage Museum (SoFAB) and Nunez Community College have teamed up to open a 40,000-piece public culinary archive. The public is invited to attend the ribbon cutting.
The partnership between SoFAB and Nunez creates a permanent home for the more than 40,000 culinary books, menus, pamphlets, and artifacts collected by SoFAB Founder and curator Liz Williams. The Nunez location is in close proximity to top culinary destination, New Orleans as well as a built-in user base: the Nunez Culinary Arts & Entrepreneurship program.
The SoFAB Research Center at Nunez Community College will be a boon for Nunez’s Culinary program. It will provide endless resources to the community, as well, as the Research Center is open to the public. The collection catalog will be available online at both the Nunez and SoFAB websites.
The center’s inaugural exhibit: The First Settlement: Filipinos in Louisiana celebrates one of the distinct contributors to Southeast Louisiana’s culinary identity.
