City Market and the Intervale Center have teamed up to create an exploratory series called The Dish. With support from ArtsRiot, we host quarterly panel discussions that dive into hot food issues with the help of local experts.
Doors open at 5:00pm. Cash bar.
Vermont is nationally known for its strong food and farm heritage, dating back thousands of years. In this Dish discussion, we’ll explore the ways that our production of dairy products, maple syrup, and fruits and vegetables are similar to earlier times, as well as some recent innovations that are quite different. We’ll dive into Vermont’s culinary traditions to learn about the way people cooked and ate over the centuries, from indigenous Abenaki to European settlers. We’ll also learn what Vermonters are doing today to keep that culinary history alive, and how they are forging new traditions.
FREE! $5 suggested donation to benefit Intervale Center.
