Georgia O’Keeffe’s recipe collection, local chef Damon Sawyer, plus Prince Abou’s Butchery

A selection of Georgia O’Keeffe’s personal recipe collection is on display at Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. We talk with its curator about what the iconic American artist was cooking and eating when she wasn’t painting giant flowers, skulls, and landscapes. And, there’s a new restaurant in Bridgeport we’re excited about. We sit down with chef Damon “Daye” Sawyer to talk about his approach to cooking and what inspires his work at 29 Markle Ct. Plus, producer Emily Charash takes us to Prince Abou’s Butchery in Astoria, NY. She introduces us to Abou Sow, a millennial nose-to-tail butcher who started his artisan halal butchery on Instagram.
