    The Whitening of Black Sam Fraunces - Fraunces Tavern NYC

    in History

    Samuel Fraunces was a Cook for George Washington. Born in Caribbean of black and white parents.  Fraunces owned one of the finest taverns in colonial New York City. When Washington arrived in Philadelphia in 1790 as President, Fraunces came with him as his personal cook and established a business referred to later as the Golden Sun Tavern. Fraunces's Tavern was the social center of the New York City. It was there in 1768 that the Commerce was organized. It was here in 1774 that the Sons of Liberty planned a New York "Tea Party." http://www.kitchensisters.org/hidden_kitchens/herculeshemings_story27.htm
    Sam's daughter Phoebe is credited with saving Washington's life and spying for him. The father and daughter's racial identity is recorded as Negro, colored, Haitian Negro, Mulatto, "fastidious old Negro" and swarthy. Fraunces was immortalized in Philip Freneau's 1786 book of poems as "Black Sam." He was familiarly called by his nick name because of his tan complexion and his tight., curly hair. The Son's of the Revolution (SR), are on a mission to change Sam's Tavern into a Museum, and remake him into a white man.  Several of my ancestors were classified as mistakenly classified as White, because of their light coloring, then reclassified as Mulatto.  Look at the first and last pictures,  posted to this site. The first picture is of  (Black), Sam and the last is my relatives, Aunt Dot, Uncle Chester Ruth, who was identified as, "Colored" another form of Mulatto.
    Dedicated to the Memory of My beloved Grandson Kerry Baxter Junior! You are always a part of our lives & Family. Your spirit is alive and Well!

    Loose Weight With Robin -Robin M Hopkins

    in Women

    Robin M. Hopkins is not only a spokesperson for this natural weight release, she has also experienced it and continues the experience. And the ingredients are found in nature, not on a store shelf or from a pharmacy. If you're vegan or even if you aren't and you'd like to release weight without feeling jittery, then this show will put you at ease.


    Robin is a part of the 5-in-5 Club in which during the first 5 days you can release 5 lbs and before you say that's water weight, does it really matter what type of weight you release when you're trying to get rid of unwanted poundage? I don't think so. 


    Natural weight release? Join me as we find out what exactly she continues to use and maybe even get on board, since she is now down 31 lbs and counting.

    VOILÀ CHOCOLAT ,WHERE HAPPINESS LIVES ! Come Create play

    in Pop Culture

    In 2012, the future founder of Voilà Chocolat, Peter, was hosting his daughter's make-your-own arts & crafts themed birthday party. He noticed how everyone at the party  both kids and adults alike became joyfully immersed in their creativity, similar to how he felt whenever he made chocolates as a trained chocolatier. That was the first moment when he knew he had to create Voilà Chocolat, to share that feeling and that magic with others. After extensive research and planning, Peter began to assemble a "dream team" to help him bring Voilà Chocolat to life. He recruited a diverse team, from a nationally-recognized Master Chocolatier and pastry chef to a senior chocolate scientist, to create a unique place where everyone, not only trained chocolatiers, could experience the fun and magic of crafting beautiful, delicious chocolates with friends, family and colleagues. As an artistic material, chocolate is endlessly fascinating, complex, and creative to work and play with. The Voilà Chocolat team now want everyone to come and discover for themselves the surprisingly rewarding and entertaining experience of making chocolates.Voilà Chocolat’s “dream team” consists of a diverse set of professionals who bring unique skills and passion.We are led by our Founder and Chief Cacao Nut, Peter Moustakerski, and our Master Chocolatier, Christophe Toury.Peter is a visionary entrepreneur with a lifelong passion for chocolate. After relocating from Bulgaria to China and co-founding a confectionary company there that he ran for 10 years.Christophe was born in Chartres, France and began his career at the Ritz in Paris. He has been named by Pastry Art & Design Magazine as one of the 10 Best Pastry Chefs in America.
