Eleanor Roosevelt: Biography and Cooking Livestream with Sarah Morgan

April 3 @ 4:00 am - 5:30 am

Eleanor Roosevelt: Cooking with the First Ladies – Sarah Morgan Livestream – Washington, DC History & Culture

We welcome you to join our friend Sarah Morgan and her “Cooking with the First Ladies” project while we learn about Eleanor Roosevelt and make a few of her favorite dishes.

Cooking with the First Ladies is a crash course in First Lady history and cooking. Accessible, bite size First Lady biographies accompanied by live cooking tutorials of some of the first lady’s favorite recipes.

During the live virtual program, Sarah will discuss First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, the Dirty 30s, & the 1940s. Eleanor was the longest serving First Lady and during that time was a political activist who was known as “First Lady of the World” for her achievements for human rights. Join Sarah as she features a few of Eleanor’s favorite recipes: her favorite famous scrambled eggs in a chafing dish, angel food cake, and a surprise vitamin rich lunch treat! Although Eleanor abstained from alcohol, we will be making a popular 1930s cocktail, a French 75, which was also featured in the movie Casablanca.

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (/ˈɛlɪnɔːr ˈroʊzəvɛlt/; October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962) was an American political figure, diplomat, and activist.[5] She served as the first lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945, during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office, making her the longest-serving first lady of the United States. Roosevelt served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952. President Harry S. Truman later called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements.


Sarah Morgan has a bachelor’s degree in history as well as a passion for the first ladies. After finding a copy of The First Ladies Cook Book: Favorite Recipes of all the Presidents of the United States at a thrift store back in 2019, she began a project on Instagram, Cooking with the First Ladies, with the goal to cook her way through all of the administrations. Now, she also creates content for the National First Ladies’ Library, filming videos to share First Ladies favorite foods and facts, tutorials, and recipes.
