Another piece of camp history has been restored and brought back to life! The kitchen’s original commercial gas stove has been refurbished back to working condition. One can only imagine the memorable meals that were prepared on this stove for Ali, camp staff, family, friends and the many celebrity guests who frequented the camp.
Muhammad Ali’s Aunt Coretta was the original camp cook. A replica of her “Rules of My Kytchen” sign hangs on the wall. When occasionally visiting the camp, Ali’s mother Odessa would also cook some of her son’s favorite meals. In later years, Lana Shabazz became camp cook. Shabazz had previously cooked for both Malcom X and Elijah Muhammad.
