The next time you use a food processor or a bread maker, think of the name Joseph Lee. In the late 1890’s this African-American inventor made the first food processor. Lee was a restaurant owner who was tired of throwing away day-old bread and looked for a simpler way to recycle it. So he invented a machine that processed the bread into breadcrumbs. With his new invention, Lee was making coatings for fried meat, croquettes and cake batters, and serving it up in his restaurant.
