Schnucks, Missouri History Museum Offer 'Cooking With Carver'

As part of the programming for an exhibition saluting the late agriculturalist George Washington Carver at the Missouri History Museum, Schnuck Markets, Inc. is offering a four-week "Cooking with Carver" series featuring cooking demonstrations highlighting various Carver-influenced products.

The George Washington Carver exhibit includes important artifacts, appealing interactives and compelling media that tell the story of Carver's life, discoveries and legacy. Carver's field notes, correspondence and artwork will be on display at the exhibit, which runs through March 1. Additionally, interactive games will allow visitors to match wits with Carver, creating their own plant-based products and solving problems related to crop rotation and soil erosion.

The partnership with Schnucks will use a medium -- cooking – to make history more relevant to today's youth, said museum spokesman. Over the course of four Saturdays, Schnucks grill master and newly trained docent Rick Cooper will demonstrate four featured recipes, and discuss the foods and their connection to George Washington Carver.

The museum said the cooking session will further demonstrate the many contributions George Washington Carver made that have had important and lasting effects on how we produce food today, as well as provide an opportunity for families to discover recipes made with Carver-inspired ingredients that go far beyond the peanut.

There is no charge for the 90-minute classes, which began over the weekend.

Schnucks operates 105 stores (including five Logli stores) and 101 pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi.
