Heirloom Seeds and Heritage Breeds w/Patrick Martins, Diane Ott Whealy, and Judith LaBelle
Heirloom Seeds and Heritage Breeds: How Our Agricultural Past Informs the Way We Eat Today
and
Tribute to Betty Fussell: Indefatigable Cook, Writer, Researcher, and Culinary Trailblazer
Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Join us in celebrating Betty Fussell, iconic American food historian and author of numerous books, who will receive the 2010 Amelia Award for Lifetime Achievement in Culinary History.  A member of CHNY for over two decades, Betty has been at the forefront of culinary issues, receiving the first IACP Jane Grigson Award in 1993 for "The Story of Corn" and the James Beard Foundation Award for Journalism for "American Prime" (2008), and she was inducted into the James Beard Foundation Who's Who of Food & Beverage in America in 2009.  In honor of Betty's many contributions to food and gastronomy, CHNY is presenting a lively panel discussion on a subject she has championed throughout her career.

Culinary history is being re-lived today as the seeds and breeds of yesteryear are appearing in farmers' markets and gardens around the country.  How is our agricultural past shaping the way we are eating today?  What is the future of heirloom seeds and heritage breeds in the modern agricultural landscape?  What lessons have been learned from large-scale commercial agriculture?  Join the discussion about foods that are once again sprouting up around the country. Panelists:  Patrick Martins, Founder of Slow Food USA and co-founder of Heritage Foods; Diane Ott Whealy, Co-founder and Vice President of Education of the Seed Savers Exchange; and Judith LaBelle, President, Glynwood. Moderator: Karin Endy, Chair of The Culinary Trust and owner of Edible Resources, a consulting company assisting non-profits and food companies with education and sustainability matters.
