About Sarah Lohman
Sarah Lohman is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, where she began working in a museum at the age of 16, cooking historic food over a wood-burning stove. She graduated with a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2005 and for her undergraduate thesis she opened a temporary restaurant/installation that reinterpreted food of the Colonial era for a modern audience.
Lohman moved to New York in 2006 to work as Video Producer for New York Magazine’s food blog, Grub Street. Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as apexart gallery, The American Museum of Natural History, The New York Public Library, The Brooklyn Brainery, The Lower East Side Tenement Museum, The Brooklyn Historical Society and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
Dubbed an “historic gastronomist,” Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, FourPoundsFlour.com, and her work has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and NPR. She appeared in NYC-TV’s mini-series Appetite City cooking culinary treats from New York’s past and is featured in The Cooking Channel’s Food: Fact or Fiction.
