North American Food Traditions

Eight years ago, when I was asked to direct a national project documenting North American foodways - working under seven of our country’s most esteemed conservationists, chefs, and farmers - I jumped at the opportunity. It was a remarkable project that changed my life and it’s with great pleasure that Pakistani-American ethnobotanist, Sarah Khan, PhD, has just written an article featuring many of the Native American chefs, farmers and retailers that were our collaborators and our guides. They’re continuing the work - as they’ve always done.
