Foodways Texas Announces Iconic Restaurant Oral History Partnership
We’re partnering with the Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) and Professor Elizabeth Engelhardt’s American Studies class at the University of Texas, Austin, to collect and archive stories regarding iconic restaurants of Texas. See the press release here.
The graduate students will collect up to eight interviews from restaurants around the state, some of which will be featured at our second annual Foodways Texas Symposium on March 23-25. We will continue the partnership after the symposium with the first stage of oral history collection culminating in a multi-media presentation and display at the Texas Restaurant Association’s Southwest Foodservice Expo in June. We will continue adding to the archive throughout the year.
