Doris Lee’s American Scene paintings celebrated everyday life, with images of “Simple Pleasures” that were connected with the American Dream during her era. In the 1940s, Lee’s artwork was featured on menus of Harvey House Restaurants, the product of immigrant, Fred Harvey, achieving the American Dream of prosperity through entrepreneurship.
This special culinary event celebrates the American Dream of Lee’s era, while also examining it in present day through a partnership with La Cocina, a non-profit working to solve problems of equity in business ownership for women, immigrants, and people of color. Experience the stories of La Cocina’s female entrepreneurs as you enjoy recipes inspired by the Harvey House Cookbook and We Are La Cocina: Recipes in Pursuit of the American Dream presented by Chef Jackie Page of Love Rocks Café, a blackand woman-owned business based in McKees Rocks, PA.
