Celebrate our food heritage with Alex Coffman, WVU Grant County Extension Agent, for an enjoyable program on “Traditional West Virginia Foods” at 1 p.m.
West Virginia’s long history of Appalachian home cooking is seen even today with home gardens, community covered dishes and rows of canned goods on basement shelves. From wild foraged foods to the ever-popular pepperoni roll, West Virginia’s traditional foods are still family favorites
“Breads, syrups and wild plants are just some of the historic foods still made today,” says Coffman. “Be sure to join in to learn more about Appalachia food history and how to prepare some favorite dishes.”
The WVU Extension Service is continuing a series of live and interactive Zoom programs with the WVCEOS. Classes are FREE and will be available on twice a month in April and May Thursdays at 1:00 p.m.
