This class is a collaboration with our partners at Project Grow!
Slow Food’s Ark of Taste is a living catalog of delicious and distinctive foods facing extinction. By identifying and championing these foods we keep them in production and on our plates. Now you can learn more about the Ark of Taste's mission to save delicious and distinctive foods from extinction. This class will begin with an overview of the Ark of Taste. Then we will explore heritage foods that are significant to class participants' own cultural and culinary backgrounds and discuss how we can keep these traditions alive. Finally, we will sample Ark of Taste foods and compare these heirloom varieties to their conventional counterparts. Participants will each receive Ark of Taste seeds for their gardens.
