Pork Shop

February 21, 2016

 

February 21, 2016
3:30 – 6:30 pm
with Salt & Time & Foodways Texas
1912 E. 7th Street, Austin, Texas 78702
$150 (includes admission to evening pig roast)

Join Foodways Texas and Salt & Time on February 21st for our inaugural Pork Shop, a pork workshop for home cooks interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of cuts, pork cookery, and breed history. The class will include instruction on basic pork butchery, methods for cooking less popular cuts, and basic recipes from the folks at Salt and Time.
 

 

While Texas may be known popularly as a beef state, pork has an equally long history within these borders. The phrases “from the rooter to the tooter” and “everything but the squeal” remind us of days when families gathered together during the winter to harvest every piece of their hog for food or other household purposes. We hope to bring a little bit of that spirit back with our first Pork Shop.

Pig Roast

Foodways Texas Community Pig Roast

 

Join Foodways Texas for a community pig roast on February 21st with Salt & Time, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, SPUN Ice Cream, and Black Hill Ranch. Patrick Feges of Feges BBQ will preside over the pit for the day roasting pork from Black Hill Ranch. Salt & Time will serve up sides and SPUN Ice Cream will scoop dessert to round out the meal. Saint Arnold will tap a keg or two to keep the party moving.
 

 
Come spend some time with good folks enjoying good food and fellowship. Funds raised from the gathering will go directly to preserving food culture via Foodways Texas oral history projects. We hope to see you there!

2016 Foodways Texas Symposium

April 7, 2016


At Home on the Range

6th Annual Foodways Texas Symposium

The University of Texas
April 7-9, 2016
Austin, Texas

Join us for our 6th annual Foodways Texas symposium, “At Home on the Range,” where we will explore the relationship between food, identity, and gender roles in our home state of Texas. Baking and barbecue, home cooking and professional kitchens, cowboys and chili queens– each of these pairs demonstrate the range of masculine and feminine relationships to food. The hidden histories of cookbooks, San Antonio chili queens, Czech home kitchens, and women pitmasters are just a few of the topics we will explore at this year’s symposium. We will hear from chefs, scholars, food writers, and entrepreneurs about the ways in which gender influenced the personal histories and major industries of the state. Join us as we delve into the intersections of gender and foodways in Texas!

In addition to our panel and speaker sessions, six meals are included in your registration. All meals will be prepared by chefs, artisans, and restaurants from around the state and in line with our theme. “At Home on the Range” will take place on and around the University of Texas, Austin campus.
