Juneteenth is a widely celebrated holiday that commemorates the last slaves being freed in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865 — more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

As with most holidays, food is an integral part of the celebration. Red drinks and foods like strawberries and watermelon are traditional, as they represent strength and perseverance in bondage. Barbecued meats and soul food round out the offerings of this shared meal gathering.

With most of the country in phases of reopening, you may not be able to attend a large barbecue or dine out in celebration today. We’re bringing the restaurant experience to you with our 3D chef’s table. Chef, television host and cookbook author Carla Hall shares three of her favorite recipes in augmented reality.
