Endangered Eating: America’s Vanishing Foods
A virtual event Monday, Nov 20, 6-7:15 pm with author Sarah Lohman, presented by American Ancestors’ American Inspiration author series in partnership with The Cook’s Cook.
An illustrated presentation and moderated discussion on a topic important both to American history and sustainability.
In Endangered Eating, culinary historian Sarah Lohman travelled the country, following the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste entries. From California to Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest to Navajo Nation, through the midwest and northeast, she interviewed shepherds, fishers, and farmers, scientists, historians, and activists, to learn about our country’s distinct foodways and traditions. She highlights efforts underway to preserve local culinary traditions and rare, cherished foods – regional foods such as wild rice, Navajo Churro ram, heirloom sugarcane, wild salmon, gumbo, and cider – before it’s too late. Endangered Eating reveals the challenge and calls us to action; it also includes recipes encouraging the purchase, preparation, and preservation of endangered ingredients.
