Appalachian Food with Dr. Julia Skinner


What kinds of food did early Cabbagetown residents eat?

Join The Patch Works Art & History Center and food historian Dr. Julia Skinner of Root to learn about Appalachian food history, including the traditions that were brought down from the mountains by many of the residents of Cabbagetown, who moved to the neighborhood to find work.
