From the Wall Street Journal:
Nobody goes to graveyards for the food, but one Bronx cemetery is trying to lure visitors by focusing on the culinary greats buried at the historic site.
Woodlawn Cemetery will introduce a tour of noteworthy graves related to New York City’s food history later this month, including some who left behind legacies that are still felt in contemporary diets.
Herman Ossian Armour, a member of the meatpacking family whose name is linked to hot dogs, rests at the same cemetery as mustard man Charles Gulden. Woodlawn is also home to Pepperidge Farm’s founder Margaret Rudkin and condensed milk inventor Gail Borden.
