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. This program dives into Vermont’s culinary traditions to learn about the way people cooked and ate over the centuries, from indigenous Abenaki to European settlers. The program also explores what Vermonters are doing today to keep that culinary history alive, and how they are forging new traditions. Brought to you by City Market and the Intervale Center with special thanks to ArtsRiot.
