Foodways Texas Does San Antonio

Foodways Texas board member Melissa Guerra hosted a coffee to update San Antonio food writers, media and interested food lovers about the formation of the new organization and invite their involvement. The meeting was held Friday at 8:30 in the meeting room of the new Earl Abel’s restaurant at 1201 Old Austin Highway. The restaurant kindly donated the facility and a continental breakfast. The meeting drew more the thirty interested individuals–attendees included representatives from the San Antonio Express-News, Texas Department of Agriculture, Culinary Institute of America, as well as editors, publishers and food bloggers from the Alamo City and Austin.
Representing Foodways Texas, Melissa Guerra was joined by former Southern Foodways Alliance president and Foodways Texas board member Toni Martin, University of Texas oral historian and author Marvin Bendele, and Foodways Texas board member Robb Walsh. Joe York’s SFA film “Buttermilk: It Can Help” was shown as part of a discussion about the kind of work that SFA does and Foodways Texas hopes to accomplish.
“The mission of Foodways Texas is to preserve, promote and celebrate the diverse food cultures of Texas.”
