The Roughwood Seed Archive for Food Studies:
Seed to Table, Regional Foods as A Dietary Roadmap in a Changing Climate
Within this framework, Dr. Weaver will outline how the Roughwood Seed Archive is working with chefs and growers to emphasize those heirloom food plants that grow best in our region and how traditional foodways have become a culinary road map into the future. This movement back to the land is taking place all across Europe, and since Pennsylvania is the third largest agricultural state in the country – with five distinct culinary regions – our unique region is poised to take a lead in the renewal of American cuisine.
