In the 19th century, it was a common practice for chefs to name dishes after famous people. We eat these dishes daily and never think twice about who the food is honoring. Here's an example: Beef stroganoff is a 19th century Russian recipe named for a Count Stroganov.
While there are plenty of breakfast, lunch and dinner staples named after famous people, the most popular are desserts.
During a two-hour demonstration and tasting on Sunday, March 20, in Germantown, Becky Diamond will discuss which desserts date back to the 1800s.
Samples will be provided throughout, as well.
