INSIDE A HISTORCAL FAUX FOOD WORKSHOP

NJ Television Spotlights Artist Sandy Levins

In this six-minute excerpt, SJ Magazine Editor and host of the New Jersey Public Television Network's "This is South Jersey" program Marianne Aleardi interviews Sandy Levins about her historical faux foods business.

Levins researches and creates period-accurate faux foods for historic sites like Washington's Mount Vernon, Jefferson's Monticello, Delaware's Winterthur, and Manhattan's Tenement Museum. In this TV segment, Aleardi tours Levins' Camden County faux food studio and workshop and discusses the techniques and materials of making such ancient table fare as "Stargazy pie" a 16th-century dish that originated in a small fishing village in Cornwall, England. The TV show was produced by SQ Productions of Cherry Hill.

SJ Magazine is a monthly publication focused on the people and places of southern New Jersey. Category
