Everybody loves a potluck, right?

Foodways Texas, an organization dedicated to preserving and exploring Texas' culinary history and culture, is hosting its ninth annual Foodways Texas Symposium in Brenham this year, April 25 to 27. This year's theme is “A Texas Potluck” and will "bring together leaders in agriculture, food, education, journalism and more to discuss all the various ways Texan’s gather around food."

James Brown of Barton Springs Mill will talk about heritage grains, University of North Texas professor Elizabeth Hayes Turner will talk about the history of Juneteenth and Texas A&M's Hannah Krebs will team up with Christy Morgan of Blue Bell to talk about high school home economics and 4-H programs. The event always features several large dinners and gatherings, as well as panels, film screenings and storytelling events. You can buy tickets and find out more at foodwaystexas.org.
